Stagecoach is ‘Giving for Good’
Stagecoach has announced new partnerships with four national charities as part of its ongoing approach to supporting the communities it serves.
It has also announced the launch of its new initiative, ‘Stagecoach – Giving for Good’, to support its ongoing commitment to donate 0.5% of pre-tax profits every year to charitable causes.
After consulting its employees, the charities the operator is now supporting are:
- Missing People; a national charity that offers support to missing children and adults, and their loved ones.
- The Trussell Trust; who support a nationwide network of food bank centres to provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.
- Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity; providing specialist nurses and support for seriously ill children.
- Happy Days; who help terminally ill, sick, disabled and abused children and young carers with respite breaks, holidays and day trips.
The four charities have been chosen to represent the key themes that Stagecoach is committed to supporting: promoting health and wellbeing, supporting young people, skills and employment, addressing loneliness and social isolation and increasing accessibility and opportunity.
