Yellow Buses’ newly-branded vehicle is set to be the mane attraction on the roads – because it’s got Lions Club logos all over it.
The work is to mark the centenary last year of the Lions and already the bus has got off to a roaring start.
Yellow Buses wanted to highlight the landmark anniversary to assist the charitable organisation in Bournemouth raise its profile.
So one of its buses has the Lions’ logo on the side along with the message ‘Proud to be supporting the Lions Club of Bournemouth’.
Diane Avery, President, said: “We’ve just had our centenary year and knowing Yellow Buses do a lot for charity we asked if they might put our logo on a bus.
“But they went much further than that with our lion and branding all around it.
“We are keen to recruit new members and this will really help raise our profile.
“All you need to be a Lion is to have a little time to spare and the need to help others.
“We are non-religious and non-political and you would gain a new family of friends who also have a great social life.”
Fiona Harwood from Yellow Buses said: “With a large fleet across the conurbation the signage on our buses obviously has a value.
“But we also are passionate about helping charities and the community which we serve.
“The Lions Club of Bournemouth has similar aims and for the Lions’ centenary year we thought that branding a bus would be a good way to mark this achievement.”
