Southern Vectis is offering its support to local charities, schools, sports teams and events organisers, by opening up its community fund for applications.
The local 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.
Southern Vectis general manager, Richard Tyldsley, said:
“We play an integral role within our local community, providing bus services across the island - and that means a lot to our team,”
“In addition to all this, we want to support and raise awareness for those doing excellent work on behalf of those living here.
“The fund is open to everyone — from charities to sports teams — and we encourage anyone needing a helping hand, however big or small, to apply.”
The Southern Vectis Community Fund will offer financial assistance and support during May and November.
To apply for the operator’s May 2022 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.
