National Express is this Sunday “renaming” towns and cities across the UK in a unique tribute to the hardworking mums of Great Britain.

This means on Mother’s Day, Northampton will be renamed ‘Northamptmum’ while other customers will see services to locations such as: “Birminghmom,” “Cheltmum” and “Weston-Super-Mum” rolling out of coach stations across the nation.

The company is also offering thousands of fares to destinations across the UK for £5 to mark the occasion.

UK coach managing director Tom Stables said: “Mother’s Day is a time for giving back to your mum and showing her how much she means to you so rather than keeping mum, we’re proudly demonstrating our admiration for the country’s hard-working mothers by renaming towns and cities of the UK in their honour.”

Northampton customers can catch National Express services from stops in Victoria Street.
