Donated fruit basket

Thanks to Dennis Hutchinson, Managing Director of JR Holland Food Services, Ltd in Gateshead, people in greatest need are now able to benefit from their weekly donations of fresh fruit. People on low incomes often miss out on the benefits that come from fresh fruit and vegetables, but they are now able to pick up portions for free, directly from our 5p Bus.

Contributions for our 5p Bus were also gratefully received from Tesco, Kingston Park. Large quantities of end of line seasonal items, toys, gifts and other goodies have been received regularly thanks to the generosity of the superstore.

Our thanks also go to the staff of OSG in Newcastle who supported our 5p Bus Toy Appeal by donating lots of gifts and toys. Staff also held a dress down day to raise money in support of the 5p Bus.

Additional thanks go to all of the many individuals, companies and organisations which regularly support our 5p Bus.
