We are launching a campaign, designed to recognise the mammoth efforts of those hidden heroes in our community that have done amazing things during this coronavirus pandemic.

We have been providing transport throughout the three lockdowns, for those who play vital roles within the local community. Now we have plans to honour these ‘Covid Heroes’ in a bus naming ceremony.

Our colleagues are themselves key workers, and we think of them as heroes. We have huge respect for those keeping us all going - whether they are NHS, supermarket staff, postal workers, carers, teachers, or volunteers. It hasn’t been easy for the many heroes who have continued to work in some incredibly challenging conditions. We would not have been able to manage without them. There is no way we could ever thank them enough - but we’d like to do something to recognise their efforts.

So we’re inviting nominations from within our local community, for someone who deserves to be named as a Covid Hero - for all to see - by having their name emblazoned on one of our buses. This could be a key worker professional or a community ambassador who has carried out much need charity and voluntary work.

Anyone wishing to nominate a hero for the bus naming honour, can do so by nominating online here. The winner will need to consent for their name to be given, to star in a photoshoot and have their name and story bought to life. The voting is open from now until Sunday 28th February. The winner’s name will appear on a bus serving the m1 or m2 routes for 12 months.

We're looking forward to reading about the amazing heroes in our community.
