The Isle of Wight bus operator’s Community Fund is a dedicated resource for backing local causes with funding, marketing help, free travel or the use of its buses for events.
Nikki Honer, Southern Vectis’ head of communications, says:
“At Southern Vectis, we’re proud to play an integral role within the local community.
“As well as providing award-winning bus services across the area, we endeavour to support and raise awareness for those doing excellent work on behalf of those living here.
“The Southern Vectis Community Fund is open to everyone – from charities to sports teams – and we encourage anyone who needs a helping hand, however big or small, to apply.”
The Community Fund is open to applicants all year round, with Southern Vectis funding and support donated during May and November.
To apply for the operator’s May 2019 allocation, groups should visit Southern Vectis’ website and provide details about their cause, what they need, and the difference this support might make to their organisation.
“We hope the new Community Fund will offer a fair support process and allow us to build new relationships with worthy causes across the Isle of Wight”.
