#BusesForHeroes - join our moving salute to Greater Manchester’s hard-working heroes!

2 months ago Fri 24th Apr 2020

We’re appealing to the proud folk of Greater Manchester for help with plans for a very special moving tribute to local key workers keeping vital services going during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Together with the Manchester Evening News we’re creating a specially liveried ‘Greater Manchester Heroes’ bus to remind everyone of the important role key workers now have in our everyday lives – from postal workers to police officers, carers to cleaners – as they maintain vital services.

Our bus will feature photographs of just some of the many people in and around Greater Manchester working hard for others during the COVID-19 outbreak – if enough local people nominate a friend or a family member online to appear on the very special bus.

As key workers ourselves, our drivers, engineers and cleaners, along with our support teams, know first-hand how important it is to keep on serving local people by helping others who need to make a journey, including to and from work or to pick up essential food or medical supplies.

We know there are many unsung heroes doing all kinds of jobs right now who deserve our community’s thanks, and so we’ve decided to recognise them by covering a bus with their photos, along with the jobs they do – with pride of place given to our amazing NHS workers.

We’re inviting anyone who’d like to nominate a key worker to contact us via our social media – that’s @rossobus #BusesForHeroes on Twitter or Rosso on Facebook – with their photo and why they deserve to appear on our special ‘Greater Manchester Heroes’ bus.
