Southmead Carol Bus grand finale Southmead Tour

 

Part of the Southmead Carol Bus team: Stuart, Cliff, Charlotte and Allana.

Charlotte Leslie joined a team of volunteers helping out on the Southmead Carol Bus’s grand tour of Southmead. The tour is the last in a series of trips the bus makes around the city, which also included this year a tour of Bristol for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal, and visits to local elderly people’s homes.

The Southmead Carol bus is the brainchild of local man, Cliff Howell, who owns Cliff’s Florists on Greystoke Avenue. Cliff set up the Carol Bus seven years ago, and since then has raised thousands of pounds for local community projects, as part of the Southmead Pride Carol Bus Appeal.

Charlotte Leslie joined Father Christmas on the Southmead Pride Carol Bus, as the bus and Father Christmas paid a visit to elderly people’s homes around North Bristol.

The Southmead Carol Bus, which has been running for seven years, makes an annual visit to elderly people, before the Bus’s tour-proper begins.  The bus also features in the Lord Mayors Appeal Tour, and the Southmead Tour, which raises money for local and community projects.

The whole project is organised by local florist, Cliff Howell, who also organises the flower-beds on Greystoke Avenue, Christmas lights above the shops and, usually, a Christmas Tree.
