Arriva North West has once again branded some of its buses with poppy decals ahead of this year’s Remembrance Day, which is the centenary of The Armistice.
Last year, Arriva showed its support for the Poppy Appeal by branding three of its buses in the North West and Wales. This year, another three buses have received special branding for the Poppy Appeal.
A Green Lane-based Alexander Dennis Enviro400 (4586), a Wythenshawe-based Wrightbus Pulsar 2 bodied VDL SB200 (3106) and another Rhyl-based Sapphire spec Alexander Dennis Enviro400 (4409) sport large poppy vinyls on each side and at the rear.
Arriva has also added a Poppy design with Lest We Forget to its destination information screens, along with a screen for the #ThankYou100 campaign.
As part of the #ThankYou100 campaign, Arriva has encouraged members of its staff to look back on their family history. Stories which have been shared by staff are to be posted on social media on Remembrance Day.
At eleven o’clock on Remembrance Sunday, Arriva drivers will hold a two-minute silence on board the bus, if it is safe and legal to do so, as a further mark of respect to those fallen.
Lisa Pearson, head of marketing for Arriva North West & Wales, said: “We are delighted to be involved in the Royal British Legion’s #ThankYou100 campaign. Every year, the Legion does remarkable work to remember those who fought for our freedom, and so this year we wanted to ensure we paid our respects to the fearless soldiers who gave their lives for our country by adding poppies to our buses to raise further awareness of the cause.”
