Bridgestone tyres has given a welcome boost to a Cambridgeshire charity by donating over £2,000 worth of tyres to keep it on the road.
Connexions, a support service which offers 13 to 19-year-olds help with a broad range of guidance, advice and practical help, relies on its converted double decker buses for its drop-in youth clubs.
The tyres have come as a welcomed surprise, especially during a time when tyre prices continue to increase, according to the report in Tyres and Accessories
Alan Webb, project manager for the Connections initiative, said: “We are extremely grateful that Bridgestone has chosen Connections as the recipient charity for their tyre donation. Receiving the tyres will allow us to continue our good work and run projects for those in need, making a huge difference to many of the young people in Cambridgeshire.”
Terry Salter, retread development manager for Bridgestone UK, explains: “Unavoidable price increases have been keenly felt by all operators, especially by charities like the Connexions initiative whose vehicles must be legally operational to continue with their valuable community work.
“It seemed right to make this tyre offer now and support them in what they’re doing for the young people of Cambridgeshire.”
