Earlier this year, talented children from Hampshire schools and charities took part in our latest lorry cab design competition.
Hundreds of children sent us their posters based around the theme of recycling and sustainability and our management team selected winning representatives from seven local schools and charities.
The seven new lorries have been signwritten with our Fortis branding and wrapped with the winning children’s designs. Visits were then organised to each of the schools to show the children their lorries.
We started our lorry tour at Overton Primary School in May, where the entire school had the opportunity to see their lorry and the winners got to sit in the driver’s seat. Mrs Glynn, teacher at Overton School commented: “It was a great day for the children, thank you for including us in the competition. The children were just so excited about the lorry and it was a great motivator for them!”
Adam Murnieks, Managing Director for Raymond Brown Waste Solutions, attended the event at Overton School and presented the winning children with a goody bag, book voucher and certificate in their recycling themed school assembly.
Adam commented: “The posters that the children designed were of a very high standard and it was very difficult to choose the winners. It was great to see the children so enthusiastic about recycling in the assembly and it was a delight to present them with their awards.”
