Hundreds of pounds has been donated to a centre which helps women diagnosed with breast cancer.
Staff at bus operator First Hampshire’s three depots held fundraisers to raise cash for the Wessex Haven in Titchfield.
They provided all the necessary ingredients to raise £439 for the charity’s Big Tea Cosy event by holding coffee mornings, cake sales and raffles at the depots in Fareham, Portsmouth and Southampton.
Chrissie Bainbridge, business performance director of First Hampshire, says: ‘I am absolutely thrilled with the way the staff at our depots have got right behind fund-raising for the Wessex Haven.
‘Breast cancer touches the lives of so many of our staff and their families that it seemed a natural choice to help the Wessex Haven raise money for the wonderful work it is now doing.’
The Wessex Haven in Titchfield offers support, advice and counselling to people who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
The centre opened last October and already the team of nurses, therapists, counsellors and advisors working there have given practical care and assistance to more than 170 visitors.
First Hampshire nominated the Wessex Haven as its local charity because its Solent Rangers X4 service stops outside the centre.
Heidi Rehman, community fundraiser for the Wessex Haven, says: ‘We are so delighted with the support we have received from First Hampshire.
‘Its staff have been great ambassadors for the Haven.’
