This year sees the 100th anniversary of the founding of Trent Motor Traction Company, which has since gone on to become trent barton, and the operator is looking for suggestions from customers on how to celebrate the milestone.
trent barton is already planning a Big Weekend charity event, which will take place over the Spring Bank Holiday and wants to organise a range of other activities in the leadup to its birthday on October 31.
Proceeds from the events will go to the operator’s chosen charity for 2013, the Lewis Mighty Fund. The fund raises money for research into neuroblastoma, one of the most common forms of childhood cancer. It was originally set up in 2009 to help fund treatment for Derby youngster Lewis Mighty, who sadly passed away in May last year.
Alex Hornby, trent barton Commercial Director, said: “We need the help of volunteers, our customers and community groups from right across trent barton land to book a free stand to raise money or promote their activities at our Big Weekend.”
