Broadland District Council has rebranded three of its bin lorries to help get crucial messages about our response to the Coronavirus pandemic into the community.
Two of the lorries carry the message that if you need support or advice to 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 Broadland.
Leader of Broadland District Council, Shaun Vincent said:
“It’s absolutely vital that residents follow the governments guidance and stay at home. We are doing all we can to help residents self-isolate and protect the NHS and we are using every channel we have to get these critical messages seen.
“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 you’ve been furloughed or have the skills that we need, then please get in touch and make a difference by joining the volunteers that are helping to save lives.”
