Stagecoach South West will be delighting children across Devon with their Christmas themed ‘Santa bus’.

The bus, which is vinyl wrapped to look like a Christmas present and is decorated inside with a traditional Christmas scene, will be travelling around Devon with Christmas giveaways and activities for children to enjoy.

Family favourite mascot, Gary the Rabbit, will be on-board the ‘Santa bus’ ready to give out gifts and pose for selfies alongside the Stagecoach elves.

The Stagecoach roadshow team will be taking the Santa bus to meet children at Children’s Hospice South West, various local primary schools and at a Young Carers group in Torquay.

Karen Hodder, Commercial Director of Stagecoach South West, said: “We are delighted to be visiting communities across the region on the Santa bus, meeting families and children and helping to spread that magical festive feeling.”

The bus will be visiting the following locations:

●      Barnstaple Christmas Light Switch On, Thursday 28th November

●      Children’s Hospice South West, Barnstaple, Thursday 12th December

●      Local primary schools, Barnstaple, Friday 13th December

●      Young Careers, Torquay, Saturday 14th December
