A banner thanking key workers, NHS and volunteers for their work during the coronavirus crisis has been unveiled at The Harris in Preston.

The banner, on the building’s balcony, has been commissioned by the city council.

It was officially unveiled by Preston mayor David Borrow, members of the council’s street cleansing team and volunteers from the Preston Promises group.

The mayor said: “Everyone is extremely grateful for the continued hard work of key workers, NHS staff and volunteers.

“I am honoured to be able to unveil this banner to show our gratitude for those who keep our city going and keep us safe. Your hard work and dedication make Preston proud.”

“Covid-19 has been our biggest challenge yet, but our volunteers and fellow Prestonians have risen magnificently to the occasion.”
