Metrocentre shop, The Entertainer, supports work of our 5p Bus

30 July 2013

Customer on the 5p BusWe'd like to offer our sincere thanks to Gary Grant, Managing Director of The Entertainer toy shop in the Metrocentre for his generous support of our 5p Bus.

Gary's most recent contribution of £1,500 will keep our 5p Bus on the road for an entire week, during which time we will be able to provide hundreds of people struggling to make ends meet with thousands of items of clothing and other essential items.

As well as this financial contribution towards our running costs, Gary has previously provided hundreds of pounds worth of toys for the children of needy families who visit the bus around the region. He is also an avid supporter of our work and actively encourages others to help us in any way they can.

"We have been impressed with the achievements of the 5p Bus in making a difference in the lives of those struggling to make ends meet,” said Gary. "This work offers outstanding value for money to the many families who benefit from the distribution of clothes and toys. It is for this reason that we have decided to sponsor one week's running costs and we would encourage other businesses in the region to consider sponsoring this very worthwhile resource.”
