Team members also positioned buses to spell out 'GNE'

Last night, the region’s largest bus company, Go North East championed its team members in a thank you video, following weeks of praising fellow key workers during the weekly ‘Clap for our Carers’ activities.

In the video, made and edited locally by teams across its depots, managers from across the company can be seen and heard delivering their personal thank you messages, including managing director Martijn Gilbert and operations director Gary Edmundson alongside depot management, supervisory and other colleagues.

Team members positioned buses to spell out ‘GNE’ and the video also includes managers clapping as part of their thank you, with other activities still taking place across the region to thank fellow key workers.

Martijn Gilbert, managing director at Go North East, delivered his message saying: “For the past seven weeks, we’ve come together every Thursday as a team to clap for the NHS and fellow key workers across our region and the rest of the country.

“Tonight, we want to clap for you, our key workers, Team GNE – to say thank you for the phenomenal job you’ve been doing day in, day out, to enable us to deliver essential services across our region.

“I am immensely proud of our team’s efforts – some of the spirit that has been shown, some of the great camaraderie, charitable work and most importantly delivering essential services.

“You should be immensely proud of it too, so tonight we say thank you. On behalf of myself and the rest of the Go North East management team, we dedicate this clap to you – thank you.”
