Lothian Buses Charity of Choice

Lothian Buses and our employees suppport many charities every year through our charity committees, employee initiatives, employee donations and prizes.

Announcing our new charity partner – Macmillan Cancer Support

In the last 5 years Lothian have raised or given donations-in-kind to the value of over £1,000,000 making big difference to local charities in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

On 1 September 2017 we announced our first Charity of Choice partner will be Macmillan Cancer Support. 
Macmillan is the UK’s leading cancer care charity, with the objective of improving the lives of everyone affected by cancer and encouraging others to do the same.

Cancer affects 1 in 76 in our operating area and is a disease that touches someone close to us all.  We are hoping by working with Macmillan we will help more people get the help and support they need through difficult times.
The Charity was shortlisted by our charities committee and then chosen by our staff to work with and we are all looking forward to working together.

Look out for upcoming fundraising initiatives, information on how you can get help and support from Macmillan and fun you can get involved with over the next few months.
