Arriva North East joins the Save Darlo campaign

Employees at Arriva in Darlington are getting behind the drive to save Darlington Football Club by making it easier for fans to get to this Saturday’s match against York. 

Anyone wishing to support the club in its fight against closure can take advantage off Arriva’s free bus service to and from the game.

Michelle Mcguire, marketing coordinator for Arriva North East, said: “Arriva's depot at Darlington is happy to do their bit to support the ‘Save Darlo’ campaign.  The campaign was brought to our attention by our drivers at the local depot, many of whom are Darlington fans themselves and are volunteering to drive our supporter’s buses on their day off. We understand how important the football club is the local community and hope that our efforts can go some way to help the cause.”

Buses will depart form Darlington Town Centre from Tubwell Row, Stand L and run aver 15 minutes from 1pm till 2.45pm. The free service will then resume after the game up until 6pm to take supporters back into the town centre.
