Santa swaps his sleigh for the bus!

17 December 14

Arriva’s Santa, Mark Wain and Elf Joanna Wilinska will be driving around the local Dewsbury area handing out chocolates; spreading the Christmas spirit, and raising money for local Halifax Hospice, Forget Me Not.


Nigel Featham, regional managing director for Arriva Yorkshire said: “Giving is what Christmas is all about, and we are delighted to have our very own Santa raising money for such a fantastic cause. We hope our customers enjoy their festive bus ride, and we wish them a Merry Christmas!”


Emma Kovaleski, Head of Corporate Fundraising at the charity said: “We would like to say a big thank you to Arriva for supporting Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice this Christmas. We can’t wait to see Arriva Santa driving around the streets of Dewsbury giving out gifts, it is a wonderful way to make a moment for children this festive period whilst supporting local children with life shortening conditions across West Yorkshire.”
