If you are planning on taking a bus in Beverley this Friday you can expect to see drivers dressed as nuns and cartoon characters driving buses on the day.
Staff at local bus company East Yorkshire Motor Services (EYMS) are dressing up as they look to raise money for the Children in Need by wearing fancy dress to work.
The fancy dress day has been welcomed by the company’s bus drivers, some of whom have been preparing their outfits for weeks in advance.
Peter Shipp, EYMS Chairman and Chief Executive, says he is happy for staff to have fun at work for a good cause.
“Earlier this year we had a similar “Wacky Wardrobe Day” for Hull Children’s University, and it had a really good reaction from the public.”
“So when some of our drivers suggested we have a company-wide fancy dress day for Children in Need I thought it was a great idea.”
“We have the chance to raise lots of money for charity, and the sight of a bus driver wearing a silly costume brings a smile to our passengers’ faces – even though we do get a few confused people asking if they’ve really seen a nun driving a bus down Beverley Road.”
Drivers will be taking donations for charity on the day, as well as donating money themselves for the privilege of dressing up, and all money raised will go to the BBC Children in Need appeal.
