Bishop Auckland Station wants your artwork on display for key workers
A RAILWAY station is asking people to send in artwork and messages to be placed in a special display.
Bishop Trains, at Bishop Auckland station, has launched a ‘thank the hero window’ project ahead of its future reopening.
The Bishop Trains office has been closed since the lockdown began. He hopes to reopen as soon as possible, but wants to pay tribute to key workers in the meantime.
The company is asking children to send pictures and messages to be displayed on station windows for key workers to see when they travel to work by train, or even just for passers-by to admire .
Bishop Trains Community Champion Luke Holmes said: “We want to show our appreciation for the fantastic key workers in our communities, as our country would soon come to a halt without their admirable dedication.
“This project gives us the opportunity to thank essential key workers, while providing a fun activity for young people in the community.
To enter, entrants must make a drawing on A4 size paper and send it to the station at the following address: Bishop Trains, Railway Station, Bob Hardisty Drive, Bishop Auckland, DL14 7TL.
