YOUNGSTERS from Naomi House and Jacksplace have spent an afternoon getting creative to inspire motorists to recycle.

It comes after Fortis IBA, a Raymond Brown Company, asked children around the country to help them revamping their recycling trucks.

Billy Fysh, a young adult who has used the Naomi House and Jacksplace hospice services since he was just four years old, made a special trip to Jacksplace to see his artwork on the truck.

As a thank you, Billy received a goodie-bag from Raymond Brown chief operating officer Steve Clasby and even got to have a go in the driver’s seat.

Mr Clasby said: “I want to say a huge thank you to Naomi House and Jacksplace for designing our latest Fortis IBA lorry. It is such an honour to have been able to provide this opportunity to them and to support the work they do.

“Having met the staff, volunteers and some of the children involved in designing the lorry, I am extremely proud to say it is the latest addition to our fleet.”

Huw Bromage, activities team leader for Naomi House and Jacksplace added: “We were so excited and honoured to be asked to create some artwork for the Raymond Brown truck. The children and young adults absolutely love getting messy with paints, glitter and crayons and they all had great fun creating some recycling-inspired artwork.

“A thank you also needs to go to the team from Raymond Brown for the £10 book vouchers.
