Plymouth bus marks Armed Forces Day

Plymouth Citybus has unveiled a bus dedicated to the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, for Armed Forces Day.

It was unveiled at HMS Raleigh in Torpoint.

Plymouth Citybus MD Richard Stevens says: “We’re delighted to unveil our latest bus supporting charities close to our communities.

“The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity carries out crucial work supporting those serving and veterans – many of them in the greater Plymouth area.

“We hope this bus raises awareness of that work.”

Alasdair Akass, Director of Marketing and Fundraising at RNRMC, says: “We are very excited to have Plymouth City Bus ‘by our side’ and look forward to seeing the RNRMC bus out and about, serving the community of Plymouth.

“The inspiration behind the design has come from the wonderful mutual support that the city, the Royal Navy and the RNRMC share and the strong community spirit it creates.

“We want to ensure the naval family, both serving and veteran, know that we are there for them by their side.

“We are very grateful to Plymouth Citybus for their partnership and would also like to thank HMS Raleigh for helping us unveil the bus.”
