trentbarton bus drivers have stripped off upstairs and down for a charity calendar to raise money for a good cause.
Sacrificing their uniforms for a daring photo shoot, drivers and office staff used oversized MANGO smart cards, tyres, folders, and bus parts to preserve their modesty. Now they hope that sales of the calendar will raise thousands of pounds for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, trentbarton’s adopted charity for 2015.
Around 300 trentbarton staff voted for the life-saving service from 10 charities put forward as potential beneficiaries of the firm’s fundraising efforts. Their adopted charity for 2014, Help for Heroes, is set to receive around £5,000 from their efforts this the year.
In total, 30 staff volunteered for the calendar shoot, with images depicting them in a variety of work settings, such as driving, washing vehicles and adding fuel.
Alex Hornby, our Marketing & Communications Director, explained: “This is yet another example of an excellent fundraising effort, driven by trentbarton staff who were always prepared to show their charitable, as well as cheeky, side!
“The idea for the calendar came from them, and it says a lot for their sense of community that so many volunteered to take part.”
The calendar will retail for £4.99 from trentbarton shops this December in Derby, Nottingham, Sutton and Langley Mill, with proceeds going direct to the charity.
Alex added: “At a time of year when our thoughts turn to those in less fortunate circumstances, the trentbarton calendar is a fun gift that also makes a difference to a very deserving cause.”
