An Isle of Wight bus company is donating 10 of its fleet to help the tsunami relief effort in Asia.
The charity is shipping old buses to tsunami-hit countries
Southern Vectis has joined operators from around the country who have been approached by the charity Asia Bus Response to hand over old vehicles.
The 10 minibuses will be shipped out in the next few weeks.
"We were just at the point of beginning to think of replacing our vehicles," said Managing Director of the bus firm, Alan White.
"We are taking 19 off the road and thought it would be a good idea to donate 10 of those.
"These minibuses have got reasonable ground clearance, so they should be ideal to go in to the areas public transport can't get to."
A total of 99 buses have so far been donated by firms to the charity.
