A FESTIVE prize giveaway will offer bus passengers the chance to pick up a pool of Christmas goodies.

For the fourth year in a row, Reading Buses has partnered with a number of sponsors for the Grant Christmas Giveaway, which this year runs from December 6.

Prizes include free travel, vouchers and a coveted annual pass, with goods from Reading FC, Broad Street Mall and IKEA also on offer.

Jake Osman from Reading Buses said: “We love doing our Grand Christmas Giveaway each year. It is about spreading a bit of festive cheer to our customers and helping to promote bus use over the Christmas period.

“We know traffic gets extremely heavy at this time of year and people face the hassle of parking, getting out of congested car parks and traffic congestion in general.

“It is the time of course when more and more people come to the town centre for their Christmas shopping as well as to attend festive events and activities.”
