BEN’S BUS RAISES OVER £1, 800 FOR CHARITY!
We’re delighted to announce that for the 2016 / 2017 ski season, Ben’s Bus managed to generate a whopping £1, 800 towards good causes!
When customers book their ski transfer with us, we give them the option of adding a 25p charitable donation to their booking. We then promise to match that 25p. We’ve just downloaded our reports for the year and a MASSIVE THANK YOU goes out to all our customers who selected to give to charity. Together you raised £780. True to our word, we’ve matched that £780, giving us a total of £1, 560. Add this to the one-off donation of £250 we made in March to the Africa Famine Crisis and that make £1, 810.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Here’s a breakdown of where the money was spent and what it gets us.
SolarAid is a charity committed to helping African villages use their natural, renewable resources to better their lives whilst making minimal impact on the environment. So your donation will help bring your carbon footprint down further! We gave them £390. They have a cool calculator which shows what this money does and to the right you will see the screenshot:
WaterAid is a charity with initiatives in over 37 countries around the world, helping to deliver clean water and sanitation to the most vulnerable. We gave them £390.
Shelter is a UK homelessness organisation. We gave them £390
The British Ski & Snowboard National Foundation hopes to raise the profile of skiing in Great Britain whilst helping to fund UK up-and-coming starlets. We gave them £390

Once again, a massive thank you to all our customers and an especially big thank you to those who’ve donated. Hopefully next year we can generate even more money for good causes. Have a fantastic summer.
