BUS WORKERS are set to pull a nine-ton vintage bus along the seafront in memory of their friend.

It will be the third year the 30-strong group from First Bus have pulled the bus from Clarence Pier to Eastney Swimming Baths and back to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

Their friend Trevor Hutton died suddenly of a heart attack, in 2009. His widow, Christine, 56, from Paulsgrove, along with their children and grandchildren, will be collecting for the charity on the day, hoping to raise £4,000.

She said: ‘It is such an amazing charity, doing so many amazing things to try to eradicate heart disease.

‘We hope that as many people as possible will come down to watch the bus pull, cheering us on as we try to pull the bus. It’s going to be a challenge but there should be a great atmosphere and that should spur us on.

‘In addition to the bus pull we’re also running a raffle and people will be able to get tickets from us on the day or in advance from the First travel shops in the area.’

The bus starts at Clarence Pier, on Sunday at midday.
