Reays Coaches Ltd are to showcase two new coaches, uniquely liveried to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War I. The new coaches are based in West Cumbria and run daily commuter routes to and from Sellafield.
Managing Director of Reays Coaches, Chris Reay said: “It is important that we remember those whose lives that were affected irrevocably, and those that were lost, not only in the first world war, but in every instance of conflict since. As Remembrance Sunday approaches, the initiative is a gesture of appreciation to honour anyone who has fought for our country.
“Supporting Remembrance Sunday is important to Reays, we have a number of employees, friends and family members who are ex-service men and women as well as those who are still serving the armed forces. Every year we support Remembrance Sunday with poppies displayed on our service buses and with this year, being the 100-year anniversary, we wanted to further show our respect and gratitude to our fallen heroes.
“On Sunday 11th November our two coaches will be offering complimentary travel to both Workington and Whitehaven Town Councils to those who do not wish, or may struggle to follow the processions organised by both councils to the United Reformed Church in Whitehaven and St John’s Church in Workington respectively. It is important to us to make it as easy as possible for people to attend events on this especially important weekend.
“I am delighted with the livery on our coaches and the fantastic feedback we have already received.”
