South Norfolk Council have rebranded three of their bin lorries to help get crucial messages around Coronavirus out into the community.
Two of the lorries carry the message that if you need support or advice call 0344 8008020 and feature a young boy at a window holding a picture of a rainbow – an image that has come to symbolise hope and togetherness during this crisis.
The other contains the contact details for Voluntary Norfolk, with the message that if you can help and want to volunteer visit voluntarynorfolk.org.uk. The image is of someone dropping off boxes of food outside a vulnerable person’s house, something that is being done every day by hundreds of selfless volunteers throughout south Norfolk.
South Norfolk Council's Managing Director Trevor Holden said: “We are using every channel we have to get these critical messages out there that could literally be the difference between life and death. There are people in our community without access to the internet, so it’s crucial we do all we can to reach them and let them know we’re here to help . Equally, if someone is sitting at home with time to spare, then please get in touch and make a difference by joining the volunteers that are helping to save lives.”
