Castell Howell spreads the Covid-19 message

Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, Wales: Castell Howell is promoting the UK Government’s ‘Stay Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives’ campaign using vehicle liveries.

Castell Howell runs a livery competition for schools to enter, with pupils designing the livery for several Castell Howell vehicles. The Cornonavirus outbreak put that on hold this year so instead it is using its trucks to promote the Stay at Home message.

Martin Jones, director of transport operations, Castell Howell said: “At Castell Howell, we feel that we still have a responsibility and a role to play as a business in what’s happening across the UK at the moment.”

“Though we’re facing many challenges in our own business, we are doing what we can to make a difference, no matter how small, in spreading these vitally important messages to communities.

“The message from government and councils is stay home, protect the NHS and save lives. We wanted to support this three-pronged approach and take those three messages to local communities, through our reduced fleet.

“Our vehicles are still active in suppling essential support to customers in nursing and care homes, as well as the NHS. Though it’s a small gesture, we wanted to make sure that anyone out on the roads gets a subtle reminder to stay at home and help to support our NHS.”

Dragon Signs produced the liveries.
