rainbow roadwalk raises cash for heroes


Our bosses have been putting their best foot forward to raise around £1,000 for a charity that supports injured servicemen and women.

trentbarton Managing Director Jeff Counsell, along with Marketing & Communications Director Alex Hornby, led more than 30 staff and customers on an eight mile walk from Eastwood to Nottingham to raise cash for Help for Heroes.

They were joined by the charity’s Hero Bear mascot for the walk that covered the route of our rainbow one services, which are currently benefiting from the introduction of brand new buses. Jeff explained: “Help for Heroes is our adopted charity for 2014 and so far this year we’ve raised over £3,000.

“The introduction of 16 brand new buses for our rainbow one and rapid one services during July 2014, as part of a £2 million investment programme, provided the ideal opportunity to raise some more money for this very worthy cause.

"The new buses are currently entering service along the routes that serve Alfreton, Ripley and Eastwood and all have free Wi-Fi, built-in USB power sockets, next stop announcement system, double glazing and cosy, comfy seats with leather headrests.”

The rainbow roadwalk also featured trentbarton’s Mr MANGO mascot, and was completed in around 3 ½ hours. Jeff added: “Although the walk was a tough challenge, we had a fantastic day with great weather and I would like to thank everyone who took part or made a donation.”
