For the second year running, Mitie has donated its time and services to WMCA to help get the city in the Pride spirit by transforming bus shelters and signs with a rainbow upgrade.
Mitie’s team has undertaken a deep clean of the Smallbrook Queensway bus shelter – which features on the route of the parade this Saturday – ahead of it being painted in Pride rainbow colours. Around 40 specially designed Pride hearts have also been installed in bus shelters across the city centre with Pride rainbow vinyls decorating bus totems.
Mitie is also showing its own Pride, by adding Pride hearts to its Birmingham fleet and volunteering time to support WMCA at the Pride Parade on Saturday, 25 May 2019.
Kevin Murgatroyd, Transport Director of Mitie, said:
“Championing diversity is core to the culture of our business, so we’re incredibly proud to be working with the West Midlands Combined Authority to support Birmingham Pride once again this year. We hope local residents and visitors alike will enjoy using their new Pride-themed bus stops!”
We take great pride in our contribution to life in the UK and Ireland; over the last two years we have strived to place social value at the heart of our agenda.
Mitie has expanded its relationship with public body Historic Environment Scotland (HES) with a five-year cleaning contract worth £4.4 million.
Mitie has won a new contract to provide cleaning services across 16 of Cleveland Fire Brigade’s sites, including 14 fire stations plus its fire control room which handles all 999 emergency calls for the area’s firefighting team.
