A CHARITABLE team from a bus station in Skegness managed to raise hundreds of pounds for a worthy charity.

The Stagecoach team, based at Richmond Drive, held a fundraising event on bank holiday Monday where they raised a grand total of £569.50.

They took part in a non-uniform day, some wore fancy dress and at the bus station itself, there was a tombola, where model stagecoach buses were on offer as prizes.

There was also a guess the sweets in the box competition which was kindly donated by the Sweet Shack at Fantasy Island and also drinks which were provided by Britvic Soft Drinks.

Bus driver Roy Rawson won the sweets in the box and he kindly donated then to Mablethorpe Children’s Home.

A presentation day was held last Wednesday where the money was handed over to the RNLI.

John Irving, Coxswain Mechanic for the RNLI, said: “Thank you to everyone who took part and generously donated.”

Gary Nolan, MD for Stagecoach, said: “It is a big pleasure to help raise the money for such a worthy cause.

“I want to thank the public who took part, the staff and to everyone who contributed.”
