Grace Eyre colleagues at the Santa Bus in 2022.

Brighton & Hove Buses’ Santa Bus is once again returning to the city for its 20th anniversary.

To help celebrate 20 years of Christmas giving, the Santa Bus will travel across 20 routes, over 20 separate nights, whilst raising money for 20 local charities.

Grace Eyre is delighted to be one of Brighton & Hove Buses chosen charities this year.

Donations will once again be collected by Santa’s helpers as the bus passes by, via local supporting organisations and businesses, as well as online via GoFundMe.

Hannah Seers, Fundraising Manager at Grace Eyre, said:

“A huge thank you to Brighton & Hove Buses for choosing Grace Eyre as one of their Santa Bus charities this year! We are so excited to take part. All the donations will make a real difference to people with a learning disability and autistic people in the city and beyond.”

The open-topped Santa Bus covers areas across Brighton & Hove and beyond in the lead-up to Christmas. The bus is decorated with 10,000 lights and plays festive music while Santa waves from the top deck.

Everyone taking part is a volunteer. If you would like to come out to say hello and wave to Grace Eyre colleagues, we’ll be there on the following dates:

The Santa Bus will start every night between 5:30 pm and 5:45 pm. Depending on traffic, the Santa Bus will finish between 7:00 pm and 8:30 pm.

All the money raised across the whole season from 24th November to 22nd December will be split equally among the 20 local charities.
