Children and staff at Andy's, the children's unit in Grimsby, have been learning about the importance of bees to the environment, thanks to a donation of children's books from Stagecoach.
The international transport group is renowned for its bus, tram and rail services, but is now branching out into the world of children's books.
Steve Grant from Stagecoach Bus in Grimsby brought in some copies of their new children's book, called Stagecoach Saves the Buzzy Bees to Andy's for staff and patients to enjoy.
 
The characters in the book are based on well-known Stagecoach transport vehicles and the book tells the tale of a swarm of bees that have lost their way and have found themselves on board a tram.
 
The day is saved when they are delivered to a field where local children are sowing wildflowers. The story shares the important message that bees are not to be feared and are vital in keeping our crops and plants alive.
 
Steve is pictured handing over the books to Tracy and Carol in our children's unit, and Lily, one of the patients at Andy's.
“We understand that our services are important to local communities," said Steve.
"Whether we’re taking people to work, taking them shopping or to visit their families we play an important part in our passenger’s lives.
"This is why we want to give something back and hope that by raising funds for local charities and donating these books we can have a positive impact on our local communities.”
