The Yellow Bus Scheme
The Yellow Bus Scheme was first launched in 2002, providing two buses, one for Magna Carta School in Egham and Fullbrook School in New Haw. This has now extended to Jubilee International High School in Addlestone and Salesian School in Chertsey, meaning the service now runs seven buses in total.
We have have now been running the scheme for over 15 years, making our yellow buses one of the longest running schemes of its nature set up by a borough council with local sponsorship. Local companies currently lending their sponsorship to the scheme include Thorpe Park, P&G and World Duty Free Group.
If you would like to sponsor a yellow bus, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your logo will appear on our guides, tickets, and of course the bus itself!
Specsaver Surrey Youth Games
The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games (SSYGs) is aimed at children new to sports or those who have little opportunity to try a different sport. Children who sign up for the SSYGs get up to eight weeks of free coaching to provided in each of the 12 sports, which is the perfect platform for young people who are currently inactive or do not participate in sport to get invovled. At the end of the eight weeks, a set number of children will get selected to represent their brough in a competition held at the elite facilities at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford.
Runnymede Borough Council currently funds coaches to run free coaching sessions to children before they are selected for any team. The council also funds the venue hire fee and as well as equipment that needs replacing year or year. In these challenging times for local authority finances, support to help continue this scheme would be very welcome.
If you or your organisation would like to support this scheme, please contact email@example.com.
