Fundraising at hoppa
Generating income through fundraising helps us to continue to provide a service that is affordable and
to have a fleet of buses that are reliable and comfortable.
There are many ways to show your personal support for hoppa; here are a couple of ways you may wish to help.
We are raising money to buy two new buses on the online giving platform Just Giving.
In our first campaign we would like to raise enough money to buy an electric vehicle so we can pilot running this type of vehicle with confidence before transitioning to an all-electric fleet of buses.
In our second campaign, we are aiming to raise enough money to replace one old bus with a new one that has been modified to include fold-out steps and a ramp or lift so it is accessible for wheelchair and pushchair users.
Co-op Local Community Fund
hoppa has been chosen by the Co-op to be part of the Local Community Fund. This means that when members buy selected Co-op branded products and services, 2p for every pound spent will be donated to good causes as chosen by Co-op members.
If you are a Co-op member, please could you help us to reach our target to buy a new electric bus by choosing us as your favourite local cause.
Find out how to nominate hoppa and see how much has been raised so far. If you do not have access to the internet, you can still choose hoppa as your preferred charity by calling 0800 0686 727.
We take part in a fundraising programme called Nectar Donate which is run by the online fundraising platform Crowdfunder.
As well as donating cash there to hoppa, you can choose to donate some or all your Nectar points as well. Any donations we receive will go towards funding our new buses so we can continue to enable older people and those without transport to be independent.
Do it yourself fundraising

If you would like to raise money for hoppa, you can make use of our Just Giving page to set up an online ‘Fundraise for us’ page. JustGiving has a checklist which you can use to create your own online campaign. There are tips on writing your story, choosing your goal, adding pictures and videos, posting updates, and personalising your thank you messages.
