Arriva Angel in the Making!
Young boy Lewis Harper from Dewsbury regularly puts a smile on the face of others as he catches the Arriva 254 from Dewsbury moor to Heckmondwike every night, and visits Arriva Yorkshire’s Heckmondwike depot. To say thank you for his ongoing loyalty, the local Bus Company invited Lewis and his Mum on a surprise tour of his favourite 268 bus where he was rewarded with a gift from local depot manager, Mark Fenwick.
Nigel Featham, regional managing director for Arriva Yorkshire said: “Everyone at Arriva Yorkshire recognises the kindness of this young boy and his friendship with the Heckmondwike depot team. We want to thank him for being such a loyal customer, and what better way to do this than by presenting him with his very own Arriva model bus, along with a free week’s travel for two, so he can continue to explore Yorkshire on our Arriva buses!”
Lee Watson, relief inspector at Heckmondwike said: “Lewis is the depot’s ray of sunshine! He is loved by everyone and we always look forward to his visits!”
Sarah Harper, Lewis’s mother, added: “Lewis is a very kind hearted young boy who simply wants to make others smile. He likes bringing biscuits and goodies for the team. I would like to thank all the Arriva drivers and work men at Heckmondwike for their kindness towards Lewis, visiting the depot is his favourite part of the day!”
