Stagecoach West bus drivers will be on song when they come to Swindon in their illuminated Christmas Carol bus later this month.

The team of 15 have been touring the region dressed in Christmassy costumes and performing carols to raise money for the James Hopkins Trust.

Now they're coming to the Swindon Designer Outlet on Thursday December 21 from 6pm to 8pm to get everyone in the festive spirit.

The 15-strong Stagecoach West team will be singing carols when they tour the region on a specially decorated Christmas Bus complete with sparkling illuminations.

Rupert Cox, Stagecoach West’s managing director, said: "We are delighted that so many of our staff have once again entered into the Christmas spirit and given up their time to support such a worthwhile cause.

"The James Hopkins Trust is a Gloucester charity providing respite care for babies and children with life limiting or life threatening conditions.

"Since the charity was founded they've provided free support to over 500 children and families.

"Any donation made will be greatly valued by the charity.

"For instance just £10 will pay for a child to enjoy one hour in their multi-sensory room, whilst £15 will pay for one hour of nursing respite in the child's family home."

To donate £3 to the James Hopkins Trust, text CBUS65 £3 to 70070.

They will receive 100 per cent of every donation. Or visit the Stagecoach West fundraising page at
