London double decker bus spotted on streets of Leamington

A LONDON double-decker was spotted in Leamington but the driver had not lost his way.

PGS Global Logistics gave the Acorns Hospice charity a lift – quite literally – when it took volunteers and fund-raisers for a ride on the Routemaster bus around the West Midlands.

Owner of both PGS and the big red bus, Paul Eyles, drove the bus with 60 fund-raisers from a Coventry pub where the party enjoyed a main course, to the Star and Garter in Leamington Spa for dessert.

But there were no financial passengers on this culinary trip – as each paid £30 for the privilege, half of which went to Acorns, the Midlands-based children’s hospice.

Paul said: “It always raises a smile when we get the red Routemaster out for charity – and we were able to raise more than that as our party generated around £1,000 for Acorns at the same time.”
