Pawel Hala is raising money for Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS), which looks after young people with life-shortening conditions while providing support for their families.

He can be seen wearing his promotional t-shirt while he is behind the wheel of the service six bus from Lerwick to Sumburgh.

Pawel, who works for Cunningsburgh based J&DS Halcrow, moved to Shetland in November last year and is enjoying island life whilst working hard to get to know the local community.

J&DS Halcrow operations manager Jonathan Harwood said: “Pawel is a valued member of our driving team, and we hope he will raise lots of money for a worthwhile cause.

“We’re really proud of his efforts and only too happy to help him promote his fundraising efforts.”
