ELITE Supported Employment were recently announced as one of the winners of the Charity Bus Competition hosted by Edwards Coaches! The competition will see 10 local charities featured on the Edwards fleet for a 12-month period. Covering all of South Wales, these bus adverts will provide vast exposure to many local charities as Edwards continue their usual bus routes and services sporting charity livery!

ELITE’s COO Kathy Rivett and Communication Officer Benny Griffiths were invited down to the official launch on Sunday 21st July 2019. Hosted at the amazing Hensol Castle, providing a fantastic backdrop, the 10 charities were invited down to take photos of their bus adverts. With so many fantastic causes being represented at the event, the likes of former Welsh rugby player Lee Byrne and TV presenter Andrea Byrne also attended the event. Blessed with warm and dry weather, all the attendees posed with their buses on the castle grounds.
