Grand unveiling of keyworker hero artwork at fire station


Release date: 4 May 2020

Firefighters at Chichester Fire Station have almost filled the bay doors with paintings and drawings created by local children celebrating their keyworker heroes.

But there is still time to get your submission in.

Over the last few days, firefighters from Chichester Green Watch have unveiled the latest drawings that have been sent in to them. They have received enough to almost fill all three of the station’s bay doors, but there is still room for more.

Firefighter Mark McCarthy said: “‘We have been really amazed with the fantastic drawings we have received so far, and we have had all sorts. “Everything from doctors, to delivery drivers, supermarket workers to social workers. But there are definitely still some unsung heroes out there who should be represented here.

“We would like to encourage all children to think about the people who are working really hard at the moment to help keep us all safe, and to put pen to paper and send us a drawing of them.”

Once the bay doors are filled, the crew will pick their favourite and the lucky winner will be invited to the station to find out more about the work the fire and rescue service does once this period of social distancing has been relaxed.
