The public have until the end of November to cast their votes in the Oxford Bus Company ‘Brand the Bus!’ competition, to have a say in which good cause will have its livery on a double-decker next.   

The competition offers people the chance to nominate their favourite charity or good cause to be branded on a double-decker bus. The deadline to enter has now closed and the competition has entered the final stages of the public vote.

Some 23 entries have been received. There are now almost three weeks left for the public to cast their vote on an entry to allow a short list to be drawn up to be judged.

The entries are from: Pancreatic Cancer Action, Be Free Young Carers, Helen & Douglas House Children’s Hospice, ARCh, The Archway Foundation, PACT, Children’s Air Ambulance, Yellow Submarine, Maggie’s, Kelly Jackson Memorial Fund, OASIS, Heart Heroes, Borneo Nature Foundation, My life Choice, Standing with Giants, Sue Ryder Palliative Care Hub South Oxfordshire, Medical Detection Dogs, Restore, HFT, Edge Housing, Read Easy Oxford, Sobell House Hospice Charity and Inclusive Care & Education. 

Phil Southall Oxford Bus Company Managing Director said: “We’ve had another fantastic response to our ‘Brand the Bus!’ competition and so many excellent charities and good causes have entered. Voting is now taking shape and I’d encourage anyone who hasn’t yet cast their vote to take part and have a say.”

The 10 entries that are deemed best according to a public vote will be shortlisted and examined by a judging panel. Prizes will be awarded to the competitors who have, in the panel’s opinion, fulfilled the brief to the highest standard. The winning organisation will be invited to work with the Oxford Bus Company to design a bus wrap featuring the brand colours, logo and messages of the charity. 

The deadline to vote is 23.59 on November 30th.
