Daf Trucks provides free cuppa and mince pies for drivers

Daf cup of coffee and mince pie

Daf Trucks is offering a free cuppa and a mince pie for truck drivers again this Christmas as a thank you for their hard work throughout the year.

At the same time, the Daf Trucks Christmas Choir – a collective of employees from Daf Trucks, the Daf Dealer Network and Daf drivers – has released ‘Trucking Home for Christmas’; a cover version of the Christmas pop classic by Chris Rea.

The song is in support of The Drivers Fund – a not-for-profit organisation supporting drivers and their families who are facing financial difficulties – and can be viewed on Daf Trucks’ YouTube channel.  

Drivers of all truck types will be able to claim a free hot drink from now until December 24, by visiting the following eight Truckstops: Avon Lodge Truckstop in Avonmouth; Junction 29 Truckstop in Chesterfield; Lymm Truckwash; Roadking in Cannock (Certas Energy); Ashford International Truckstop; Chippenham Pitstop; Ulceby Truckstop in Immingham; and Lockerbie Lorry Park.

“It’s been another tough 12-months for the transport sector,” said Daf Trucks’ marketing manager, Phil Moon.

“This is a chance for Daf Trucks to say thankyou to the many thousands of drivers who continue to go above and beyond – especially at Christmas time.

“The Daf Christmas Choir has been fantastic fun,” he added, “and I’m genuinely impressed with the dedication of the choir members – they can really sing.

“We hope ‘Trucking Home for Christmas’ will raise much-needed money for The Drivers Fund, and to provide vital support at this festive time of year.”
