AS part of a year of fundraising, leading South Wales transport operator Adventure Travel has launched a special, branded bus for Tŷ Hafan, its inaugural charity of the year, which it is asking locals to name.

The dedicated, Tŷ Hafan branded bus will be seen across South Wales, travelling the routes from the company’s three depots in Cardiff, Taff’s Well and Swansea, to increase awareness for the charity.

The bus will help raise even more money for Tŷ Hafan, thanks to PrintSauce, the vinyl and design company used by Adventure Travel, who after finding out about the bus, offered to undertake the artwork for the bus completely free of charge.

Adam Keen, Managing Director of Adventure Travel, said: “This collaboration between Adventure Travel and our vinyl supplier, PrintSauce, will ensure that the charity bus generates as much awareness and income for Tŷ Hafan as possible.”

As the new bus hits the road, Adventure Travel is offering people the chance to name the bus in return for a small donation. People are being asked to donate £2 for every name submitted and if selected, the name will be added to the bus as a vinyl. Names can be anything, the more creative the better, the only restriction is that it must be family friendly.

Adam said: “We are delighted to offer people the chance to name this bus in return for a small donation. The feedback about the bus so far has been incredible and we’re looking forward to seeing it travelling around Wales, raising awareness of the great work done by the Hospice.”

The winner of the name the bus competition will be announced on the 21st June. Anyone who wants to enter can head to Adventure Travel’s JustGiving page, to make their donation and write the name/s they wish to call the bus.
