McGill's made a little boy's Hallowe'en extra special when we provided him with a mini version of our uniform, so he could dress up in his dream costume; a bus driver.
Mason, aged 5, was fully equipped for his Hallowe'en disco with his McGill's tie, jumper and personalised high-viz, not to mention his own drivers pass.
We initially received the enquiry from Mason's Mum, Rebecca, after he had told her that he would like to dress up as a McGill's bus driver. McGill's was delighted to help out, and depot manager David Taylor, organised an embroidered uniform in his size.
Mason was later invited to McGill's Inchinnan depot, where he got to sit behind the wheel of a bus, watch them go through the bus wash, travel on a double-decker through Paisley and have a seat in the boardroom to 'sign his driver contract'.
Rebecca said: "Mason and I frequently travel on a McGill's bus to and from hospital appointments, he is autistic and absolutely loves buses and numbers. Usually in the run up to Hallowe'en, I ask him what he would like to dress up as he picks a superhero, so I was quite surprised when he wanted to dress up as a bus driver. McGill's and David were ever so helpful, they organised all his uniform and invited him to the depot for a tour. Mason had a lovely time at his school disco, and was beyond thrilled with his costume, plus the McGill's goodies he received. I can't thank McGill's enough."
Depot manager, David Taylor, said: "It was such a pleasure to meet Mason and his Mum, Rebecca. We were delighted to get involved in creating his costume too. Mason is such a happy young boy, and it was great to see his excitement when he got to sit behind the wheel of a bus at our depot."
