We have confirmed Oxford Hospitals Charity as the winner of the hotly contested Brand the Bus! 2024 competition.

The charity supports hospitals across the Oxford University NHS Trust by providing them with the best medical equipment, research and facilities to benefit staff and patients.

It will now have its branding and key messages emblazoned on an Oxford Bus Company double-decker bus, which will be an electric vehicle in a first for the competition. The organisation will also receive a year’s worth of advertising with Greatest Hits Radio.  

Harwell based Be Free Young Carers provide emotional support, recreational and social activities to children with caring responsibilities across Oxfordshire and will receive a new ‘mega rear’ advertisement on the back of a bus.

Style Acre provides supported living, work and skills programmes for people with learning disabilities and autism, with community centres in Didcot, Wallingford and Banbury. It will receive a £1,000 worth of digital on-board advertising to help raise awareness of its activities.

The winner and runners up were selected by a judging panel from a shortlist of ten good causes who achieved the highest public votes. A record-breaking number of people voted for good causes this year, with more than 11,000 taking part.
