House on the move, thanks to logo work
NEXT time you are driving up or down the Pacific Highway keep an eye out for a huge Hernes Freight Service semi-trailer sporting a large logo of the House With No Steps on its side.
The brainchild of Stuart Herne, of Hernes Freight Service, the logo, which is painted on the side of a refrigerated FTE trailer and towed by a Western Star truck, is a gift to the community organisation where all artwork and design was donated by the freight company.
It will serve as an advertisement for the work that HWNS does.
“Hernes Freight Service delivers the fruit in our fruit packing sheds,” HWNS regional general manager, Brett Lacey, said.
“It is a great way of recognising our relationship and it's more promotion for us.”
The launch of the new logo was attended by Mr Herne and Mr Lacey on Monday, along with staff at the Alstonville business.
“Our co-workers are very pleased with the result,” Mr Lacey said.
“It's something that they can be very proud of.”
The House With No Steps was founded in 1962 by Lionel Watts.
It is a self-help and fundraising organisation to address the needs of people with disabilities so that they can be active in the community.
“We currently employ 86 people with a disability,” Mr Lacey said.
“And they work in a range of different areas.
“We run a fruit packing shed, a retail nursery, Turning Point cafe, and a gift shop, to name a few.”
