THREE bus drivers pulled on their walking boots to raise money for Typhoon Haiyan victims by walking the route they normally drive.

The 21/22 Gilroyd service's route, which by bus usually takes about 30 minutes, took Dominic Rennison, 39, and colleagues Jeff Mann, 45, and Ian Kirk, 36, and his son Kian, 12, about four hours.

They set off from Barnsley Interchange, headed up Dodworth Road onto Barnsley Road up to Dodworth, along Dodworth High Street to Pilley Hill - and then back again.

While on the walk, Dominic said: "We're walking with buckets for people to donate and every little bit raised helps. We're just going to take it nice and steady and talk to people."

Walking for the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), the walkers raised hundreds for those affected by the disaster in the Philippines.

Dean Hepworth, assistant operations manager at Stagecoach Yorkshire in Barnsley, said: "When we heard about the urgent help needed, our staff were very keen to organise a number of charity events for the DEC which help pay for emergency shelter, clean water and food.

"It's fantastic that we have already raised more than £400 and we hope to boost this figure even further with more charity activities in support of the appeal."
