Bus firm’s £1k charity donation


A sum of £1,000 has been presented to a children’s charity as part of celebrations to mark the return of an award-winning open-top bus service in Skegness.

The donation was made by Stagecoach to Dreams Come True – a national charity that helps children and young people with serious and life-limiting conditions to fulfil a dream – ahead of seeing its Skegness Seasiders hit the road for 2016.

The presentation was made at the recently held RNLI Skegness Lifeboat Station open day.

Fundraising on the day also helped bring in an extra £495.48 for Dreams Come True.

In addition, the event saw the launch of the latest Seasiders storybook – Harry and the Seasiders, Dreams Come True.

The book is based on one of the Dreams Come True children, Harry, who sadly died earlier this year.

Harry dreamed of becoming a marine biologist and is the main character in the story.

Books cost £2.50, with a proportion of the sale going towards charity.

You can buy the book at Skegness Interchange, in Richmond Drive, or order it on 01522 522255.
