Billie Box sponsors Tiffers the Bus Shelter in Ipswich.
When Jane saw Tiffers The Bus Shelter on the BBC Lookeast news bulletin, she felt moved to help this worthwhile charity.
They select 5 rough sleepers to live on board the bus with them, the bus is static in one place, at the moment they are in a lay by as they do not have any permanent land, but the bus provides a warm safe haven for the 5 guests to enable them to get back to a ‘normal’ life.
Tiffers The Bus Shelter runs a charity shop in order to raise funds to carry on paying for the ongoing maintenance of the bus and feed their patrons. They rely totally on donations and the support of the shop.
It costs approx.. £25k per year to run the bus (that’s not including any major vehicle repairs)
There are 14 places on the bus which equates to £1,785.00 per guest per year.
Jane wanted to be sure to support this worthwhile service. It really does make a difference.
