You may have noticed the special inscriptions which appear on many of our buses. namesake is a charity appeal started by a dear friend of the company, Heather Ward, back in 1991. Since it started over £100,000 has been raised for Derby's breast cancer unit, and now Heather has taken a back seat trentbarton is proudly continuing namesake.
how it works
By pledging £100 or more to the appeal, sponsors can nominate the dedication which they would like to appear on the namesake inscription. This could be your own name, a friend’s name, a member of your family or even a business, community service or a local legend. This inscription will then be seen by hundreds of thousands of customers over the following 12 months.
where does the money go?
Every penny of the £100 pledge goes directly to trentbarton's chosen charity, which for the next two years is Alzheimer's Society - a fantastic charity investing in research into dementia care, cause, cure and prevention.
Each applicant will receive their very own copy of the namesake plaque to keep. We may also do a special presentation, where we'll bring the bus to a special location to be officially named.
