Thank you NHS

1 year ago Fri 24th Apr 2020

We spelt out our thanks to medical staff by using our buses to outline the letters ‘NHS’ at our depot.

Drivers and engineers parked the buses at our Anlaby Road garage, which is next to Hull Royal Infirmary, whilst celebrating Thursday’s regular ‘Clap for the NHS’ from an open top bus at the front of the depot.

During lockdown, many NHS staff have been using the buses to get to and from work, and our staff wanted to show their appreciation for all medic’s hard work.

Ben Gilligan, East Yorkshire’s Area Director, said: “Since the lockdown, our team have been taking many NHS staff to their vital work at hospitals and healthcare facilities across the region.  We wanted to show our appreciation for their commitment and dedication.”

“We’re advising people to only travel by bus if it’s essential, and we’d encourage people to stay home, protect the NHS and save lives.”

The giant letters were captured by Hull-based Octovision Media’s drone camera, which flew over the depot.  Thank you Octovision for sending us these fantastic images.
