Front line staff at Armagh Council are to be given TWO pink T-shirts each to wear ahead of the Giro d’Italia’s arrival in the city.
The council is buying 400 shirts. Having been quoted a price in the region of £1,800, it was decided to try and negotiate a more competitive rate.
Those being given the T-shirts include refuse collectors, grounds maintenance and environmental health staff, as well as staff at the Orchard Leisure Centre, Loughgall Country Park and other recreation centres in the city and district. Navan Centre, Tourist Information Centre and Market Place Theatre staff are also included, as are the 20 workers at the Giro Festival itself.
The council feels the move will help “build momentum and generate enthusiasm” ahead of the world famous cycle race’s ‘Big Start’ in Armagh on May 11.
The T-shirts are to be worn by staff in the weeks ahead of the event.
