Yellow Buses Carbon Stoppers Ride to Rescue

Dorset’s oldest animal rescue centre is the latest recipient of a donation from the joint Yellow Buses/ Daily Echo Carbon Stoppers initiative.

Margaret Green Animal Rescue received £200 which will go towards its work caring for a variety of rescued pets.

The Carbon Stoppers initiative has handed out nearly £20,000 to charities and good causes since its launch in 2008.

Each week the Yellow Buses holds a ‘Thank You Thursday’ when every trip taken by passengers on the day contributes to a separately administered Community Chest.

Jenni Wilkinson from the animal charity received the cheque at its shop in Wimborne Road, Winton.

She said: “It’s a perfect partnership, many of our shop staff and volunteers travel by bus and we’d like to encourage our customers to use the bus too.

“There is a bus stop right by the shop, making it so much easier to carry bargains home”.

The charity, based in Church Knowle, rehomes over 1,200 animals a year; from rabbits and cats to donkeys and horses. And it relies on donations to operate.

Fiona Harwood from Yellow Buses said: “We try and donate to local good causes and Margaret Green Animal Rescue is a long-standing Dorset charity.

“It does amazing work caring for homeless, abandoned, neglected and mistreated animals.”
