A HAMPSHIRE bus firm has helped raise awareness for a cancer campaign by donating thousands of pounds of advertising space to it.

First Hampshire has donated more than £5,000 of advertising space on 200 of its buses across the region to Macmillan’s Cancer Support Not Alone campaign, to help the charity ensure no one faces the disease alone.

Nationally FirstGroup will display the adverts on more than 3,100 buses.

First Hampshire general manager Chrissie Bainbridge said: “First Hampshire is very proud to support Macmillan and people across Southampton who are affected by cancer.”
