220, one of two trams on Nottingham Express Transit to receive a new name annually, has been named Sophie Robson – the latest winner of Nottingham’s Nurse of the Year. The tram was named at a special ceremony held at Wilkinson Street Depot.
Andrew Conroy, Chief Operating Officer at Tramlink Nottingham, said: “We were delighted to welcome Sophie to the NET depot for what’s always a very special occasion. It gives us the opportunity to recognise the commitment, compassion and dedication that’s found across the nursing profession while celebrating the individual contribution made by the overall award winner by naming a tram in their honour.”
The new name will now be carried on the tram for next 12 months before the next recipient has the honour in 2020. The tram was previously named Luisa Avandanzo, the winner of the 2018 Nurse of the Year Award.
