Portsmouth sign firm does its bit for the community
A SIGN company in Portsmouth has been showing its support for the local community by supplying hundreds of stickers for free.
Signs Express, in Walton Road, Farlington has supplied more than 6,000 social distancing and Covid related signs and graphics since the beginning of the pandemic.
More than 500 stickers, which show detailed diagrams reminding people to wash their hands regularly in the correct way, have been provided free of charge to local businesses including nurseries and schools.
Staff have also been volunteering over the past year, using their van to collect and deliver food for the food bank at St Margaret’s Community Church, Southsea.
Managing director Ray Allenby has also been volunteering for the NHS.
He said: ‘We’ve been lucky enough to remain open for the majority of the past year so supporting our community was an easy decision. We have the van available and know how important the work done at the church is, we love pitching in.’
Signs Express opened in 2002 and supplies signage to the education, retail, hospitality, construction and professional services sectors.
