Network Warrington shows support for Poppy Appeal


LOCAL bus company Network Warrington staff will be showing their support to the Royal British Legion and the Poppy Appeal by selling poppies in the town centre this weekend.

Thirty buses will be adorned with poppies to complement Network Warrington’s existing, iconic liveried “poppy bus”, all of which will be operating throughout the network in the run up to Remembrance Sunday.

Alongside this, on Saturday 4 November, a group of Network Warrington staff including drivers, service managers and Managing Director Ben Wakerley, will be collecting donations and selling poppies in the interchange and Golden Square.

Ben said: “Network Warrington has been a long-standing supporter of the Royal British Legion and the important work it does, but I’m particularly pleased that this year we have recruited some of our staff to volunteer and sell poppies.

“One of our drivers, Vincent Hawthorn, suggested we should proactively support the Poppy Appeal and I’m pleased to see colleagues playing their part.

“If you see me or another member of the team on Saturday, dig deep and show your support for a worthy charity.”

Network Warrington staff will be based at Golden Square shopping centre and the interchange from 10am this Saturday. For more information, follow @WarringtonBuses on Twitter.
