Hills­bus Wishes Ev­ery­one a Merry Christ­mas!

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

If you don’t have a one horse open sleigh to get you around this Christ­mas, ride in a Hills­bus Christ­mas Bus in­stead.

Driv­ers have been work­ing hard in their own time to dec­o­rate two Christ­mas themed buses which are on the road this year to raise money for the Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal at West­mead’s Light for Kids ap­peal. The project is fi­nanced and sup­ported by Hills­bus.

Syd­ney Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tals Net­work Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, Dr Michael Bry­don said: “Some of our pa­tients spend the fes­tive sea­son in hos­pi­tal and un­for­tu­nately do not get the op­por­tu­nity to head out to see the Christ­mas lights with their fam­i­lies.

This time of year is all about giv­ing and Lights for Kids is the perfect way to be in­volved and help sick kids live their health­i­est lives.”

The two buses, with a Santa and a North Pole theme, will op­er­ate out of the Du­ral de­pot and will run on city and lo­cal ser­vices through­out De­cem­ber. As pas­sen­gers jingle all the way on the Christ­mas Buses they are en­cour­aged to do­nate by plac­ing money in the buck­ets pro­vided in each bus or to go to https://www.lights­forkids.org.au/hills­bus-christ­mas-buses.

Over the years the buses have raised tens of thou­sands of dol­lars for The Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal at West­mead to help in their vi­tal role of pro­vid­ing spe­cialised care and sup­port for sick chil­dren.

“Our driv­ers have worked hard on mak­ing these Christ­mas Buses the best ever and they get a lot of sat­is­fac­tion out of not only help­ing to raise money for a wor­thy cause but also pro­vid­ing some Christ­mas cheer for our cus­tomers,” said a Hills­bus spokesper­son. “Once again we hope our cus­tomers will get into the fes­tive spirit and be gen­er­ous in their sup­port.” Hills­bus wishes all its cus­tomers a safe and happy fes­tive sea­son.
