The competition offers people the chance to nominate their favourite good cause to be branded on a double-decker bus. The winner will have their logo and messages proudly displayed all over an Oxford Bus Company bus which will operate on its City services.
Some 23 entries have been made by local good causes and charities. So far more than 4,800 votes have been cast – and there is still time to take part and vote. The deadline to vote for your favourite entry is 23.59 on November 30th.
The entries are from: Pancreatic Cancer Action, Be Free Young Carers, Helen & Douglas House Children’s Hospice, ARCh, The Archway Foundation, PACT, Children’s Air Ambulance, Yellow Submarine, Maggie’s, Kelly Jackson Memorial Fund, OASIS, Heart Heroes, Borneo Nature Foundation, My life Choice, Standing with Giants, Sue Ryder Palliative Care Hub South Oxfordshire, Medical Detection Dogs, Restore, HFT, Edge Housing, Read Easy Oxford, Sobell House Hospice Charity and Inclusive Care & Education.
Phil Southall Oxford Bus Company Managing Director said: “With just one week to go to cast votes we are encouraging people to get involved. It is an opportunity for people to have their say on which good cause could be supported next year.”
The 10 entries that are deemed best according to a public vote will be shortlisted and examined by a judging panel. Prizes will be awarded to the competitors who have, in the panel’s opinion, fulfilled the brief to the highest standard. The winning organisation will be invited to work with the Oxford Bus Company to design a bus wrap featuring the brand colours, logo and messages of the charity.
