Meet Anthony Beecher, dedicated driver at Lothian Buses.

Each December the people of Edinburgh are transported in style on the ‘Santa Bus’ when Anthony dons a Santa outfit. Anthony asks travellers to donate to Children 1st online or by text, and has raised more than £1,000 since 2014.

Keep an eye out for the ‘Santa Bus’ this December and if you are lucky enough please tweet the bus number to us @children1st #SantaBus
