This year, Leeds Festival organisers Mean Fiddler teamed up with Geldards Coaches in Yorkshire to offer those going to the Leeds Festival a cheap, easy and low impact bus service from the city center to the festival site.

As well as their ability to offer cheap transport, Geldards were chosen for their commitment to donating a certain amount of the money raised from bus ticket sales to charity. 10,000 was raised for Martin House Hospice, which Mean Fiddler then matched with a further 10,000.

On Thursday (November 24th), Brenda Peel and Stewart Andrew from Martin House were presented with these donations by MD of Mean Fiddler Melvin Benn and Terry Geldard and Marie Henderson from Geldards Coaches at Bramham Park, the venue used for the Festival.

Stewart Andrew from Martin House said of the donation: "This year fundraising has been especially difficult due to so many demands on the public and as we've got to raise 3.6million every penny counts and this is a wonderful donation that we are delighted to receive."

Martin House Hospice is one of the best loved charities in the West Yorkshire area, caring for children since their opening in 1987. The hospice offers a range of care including respite, where families can take a break from the stress of looking after a child with short life expectancy, through symptom control from dedicated and experienced medical teams to emergency care and support for families through the terminal care process and bereavement. Their work is a great help to families under huge stress and the money raised will help to ensure that more families can depend on Martin House to help them through very difficult and emotional times.
