Celebrities, including Gary Lineker, have become the voices of some Network Rail stations this week to surprise key worker passengers.
Famous names, including Gary Lineker, Claudia Winkleman, Beverley Knight, Lord Sugar and President Trump (impersonated by Rory Bremner) have recorded special messages to show support to key workers.
The #MakeItBlue campaign by Network Rail salutes hard-working NHS staff and essential workers across the country.
The recordings, which were donated free of charge, include messages of thanks from Chris Moyles, Alan Carr, Arlene Phillips, Edith Bowman and Rick Edwards.
The messages will be played in Network Rail’s Southern region stations; London Victoria, London Bridge, Cannon Street, Charing Cross, Guildford, Clapham Junction and London Waterloo before they go live nationwide.
For those not travelling at the moment, Network Rail will be sharing the announcements on Twitter @NetworkRailSE
What did the officials say?
John Halsall, managing director for Network Rail Southern region, said:
“The NHS, frontline workers and station staff, are making the nation proud every day; I hope these messages of thanks go some way to showing just how much we appreciate their efforts during this difficult time.”
