Red Bus has always wanted to raise money for local charities, and for the past eight years we have been involved with Schools and social events.
Local Schools like to hold a Christmas Fayre to raise extra funds for valuable equipment needed to improve children s education. Red Bus offers 15 mins rides around the area at no cost to the School to help with the fund raising.
Other events, which include Football Trophy parades, Santa rides for Children and Village Festivals

Well, we have all seen what happens when a football club wins trophies, yes, they like to parade thier wares on an Open Top Bus. The Original Red Bus always tries to make itself available incase our local teams are awarded trophies. The first football team we helped was in Liopetri and it was the last game of the season and they had won thier league, so they got a trophy. It was a sell out crowd for the last game and i think the attendence was approx 100 supporters.
