A bus operator has kindly donated sports equipment to a high school.

Katherine Voyce, Community Coordinator for Konectbus, visited Neatherd High School in Dereham to hand over a set of rugby balls to Carl Barron, Head of PE and his students, who are all part of the school’s rugby teams.

Mr Barron said: “We are so thankful to Konectbus for the kind donation to Dereham Neatherd High School, the high-quality rugby balls will help us to continue to grow our young pupils’ talents and enhance our rugby programme at the school.”

Konectbus, which is part of Go East Anglia, has provided school transport for many children for more than 20 years.

Davina Langley, Head of Commercial and Marketing for Konectbus, said: “We are delighted to be able to support the communities in which we operate, especially local schools and community groups.

“Earlier this year, we also gifted Iceni Rugby FC in Wymondham with sports equipment, and it is great to see so many people of all ages staying active and learning new skills. Konectbus is not just about taking people from A to B, it is also about bringing communities together.”

Konectbus has recently launched Generation Go, a travel campaign aimed at young people, to help develop the essential life skills they need to help grow their independence and freedom. 

The campaign is delivered through a series of school-based workshops and digital materials. For more information, visit www.konectbus.co.uk/gengo. 

Konectbus runs services to Norwich, Dereham, Wroxham, Wymondham, Watton, Attleborough and many places in between. Konectbus also operates the Hedingham and Chambers bus network in Essex and Suffolk and are part of the Go-Ahead Group.
