Santa Bus returns, raising funds for BSUH Charity

Brighton & Hove Buses’ Santa Bus is back! The festive bus will once again visit over 200 streets in Brighton & Hove in the run-up to Christmas, to spread festive joy and raise money for local charities.


This year, BSUH Charity has been selected as one of the twelve charities that will jointly benefit from the fundraising efforts. From the end of November, Brighton and Hove locals will be able to spot Santa and his elves waving from the bus, which is decked out with fairy lights and will be playing Christmas music.

The team are hoping to raise as much money as possible, and BSUH Charity are inviting the local community to get behind the festive fun! Donations will be collected online and through local businesses this year, rather than the usual door-to-door collections, due to Covid-19 safety measures. The team are particularly keen to hear from local businesses that might like to become a Santa Bus collection point. It’s quick and easy to set up, just check out the link here for further information. Every participating organisation will receive a collection bucket and poster, and appear on the bus company’s Santa Bus map on the website.

The BSUH Charity team will be travelling on the top deck of the bus for one special evening, so be sure to give them a wave! More information, and details of when the bus will be visiting your area is coming SOON.

This is sure to be a joyous series of events, and a great way to launch the festive season. If you’d like to support the Santa Bus and BSUH Charity, you can donate here.

Ho ho ho!
