Keen to thank those continuing to play an important role in our everyday lives - from postal workers to police officers, carers to cleaners - with a specially-liveried bus, the bus firm is asking proud locals to share pictures of the many people in and around Burnley working hard for others during the Covid-19 outbreak who will then be featured in the design provided enough people contribute.

“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," said The Burnley Bus Company CEO Alex Hornby.

“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," Alex added.

To nominate a key worker, contact The Burnley Bus Company on Facebook or Twitter (using the hashtag #BusesForHeroes) and send in a picture with a reason why they deserve to appear on the ‘Burnley Heroes’ bus.
