Fresh Start is Lothian Buses Chosen Charity 2015

Category Charity

We are delighted to announce that Lothian Buses has chosen Fresh Start for its Charity of the Year for 2015. We are looking forward to working together throughout the year raising awareness of our work, staff fundraising events and employee volunteering opportunities. As one of the biggest and most recognisable companies in Edinburgh and the Lothians, the support of Lothian Buses is a fantastic opportunity for us to spread the word about what we do and reach more people.

The Chair of Lothian Buses, Tony Depledge said:

“Supporting a local charity every year is really important to us. This year we decided to choose a charity that was significantly different to previous years and Fresh Start is exactly that. Homelessness can affect anyone and it’s great that we can highlight the important work that they do.

We look forward to working with the Fresh Start team over the course of 2015, helping to raise the profile of the charity in our local community whilst having fun raising funds for this fantastic cause.”

Our Managing Director Keith Robertson said:

“This is a great opportunity for us. For a local charity like ours working in the Edinburgh & Lothian area, it will raise awareness of what we do and what homelessness means.  Being homeless can have a devastating effect on families and individuals. They lose not only their belongings, but their confidence and self-esteem.  We help them to settle in their new home and back into the community.  This partnership with Lothian Buses will enable us to reach more people than ever before.”

We look forward to following in the footsteps of the brilliant charities Lothian Buses have previously supported and will keep you well informed about everything we do!
