Following a staff vote of more than 700 drivers, Morebus have chosen our charity as their Charity Of The Year for 2024 and 2025! The local bus operator will spend the year raising funds and awareness to help the charity enhance the treatment and care of patients accessing NHS services at Royal Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch hospitals. Together with Morebus we will be able to do even more for our patients.

Morebus are keen to support their local hospitals and everybody across Dorset by holding fundraising activities throughout the year and helping to spread the word about some of the ways we are impacting our patients and NHS colleagues by raising funds that are above NHS funds.

Morebus General Manager said: “University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity is a crucial local resource, helping to pay for additional equipment, research and innovations – as well as finishing touches and ‘extras’ that complement the existing high-quality care for patients across the three towns. It provides financial support to areas of the hospitals’ services that lie beyond the scope of NHS funding – and this is of enormous benefit to thousands of people living across our area. Our Charity of the Year is voted for by the Morebus team. Many of my colleagues have benefited directly from the support University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity provides, so we are delighted to be backing this very worthy cause and raising as much money as possible over the coming year.”

Corporate Fundraiser, Hayley Harris said: “Our new partnership with Morebus is so exciting because there are so many opportunities to make a real difference together for everybody across Dorset and the surrounding areas. Our hospitals and local bus service strive to achieve the same goal – to provide the best possible service for our community. On behalf of the charity, we are looking forward to funding further items that are above and beyond NHS funds and doing even more for our patients with the support of Morebus.”
