Drivers donate cash-tray floats to Cancer Research UK
The introduction of cash-free buses inspired Wood Green drivers Andrew Vellosa and Len Jagroop to come up with a unique fundraising initiative.
The pair decided to ask drivers at all Arriva London garages to donate their final cash-tray floats to Cancer Research UK.
To collect the money, Andrew bought buckets which he painted, provided with lids, then put on display at all of the company’s 12 garages for the week leading up to the start of cash-free buses on July 6.
Andrew, who did the Shine Night Walk half marathon last year for Cancer Research and will be doing the full marathon at the end of September, has raised £544.65 with his most recent fund-raising endeavour.
“I just thought: the drivers don’t need their cash floats after July 5, so why not put the money in the buckets for Cancer Research? After all, everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer.”

Arriva London is delighted to announce the retention of route 377 from TfL, which runs from Oakwood Station to Ponders End at Enfield
It is not an easy task to design artwork for a bus over 11m long, over 4m high and 2.5m wide, but there were approximately 538 entries from several Primary schools! The sheer number and standard of entries was overwhelming!
The London Bus Awards gives TfL and bus operators the opportunity to recognise the commitment demonstrated on a daily basis from drivers, support teams and frontline TfL staff. The London bus network would not be the same without people of such a high calibre as those nominated for the awards.
Our open-top Heritage Fleet Routemaster, RMC 1464, held pride of place as part of Eldon Primary School’s celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday.
