On 20 September, The People's Friend yarn-bombed bus set off in style from sunny Torquay to mark the start of a tour to bring cheer to the nation's streets.

The bus, decorated with knitted bunting donated by supporters, has been taking free copies of The People's Friend magazine to nominated streets and care homes across the UK, and raising awareness of Re-engage and our call companion service along the way.

After wowing the public in Devon, the colourful bus headed up to Barnsley and on to Kendal in Cumbia before reaching its final stop, Dundee, home of The People’s Friend.

Unsurprisingly, the bus attracted plenty of attention en route and received coverage across national and local media.

We think it looks spectacular.
