We’ve all been applauding NHS staff on Thursdays, now DAF are recognising some of the unsung heroes who are helping to keep the country fed and supplied with medicines and other vital products.

The UK’s truck drivers.

DAF Free cup of tea or coffee

The team behind the UK’s market leading truck manufacturer is putting their hands in their pockets and buying cups of tea for any truck driver, not just those behind the wheel of a DAF at selected Truckstops across the UK.

Drivers visiting the following Truckstops from Thursday 9th April can simply ask for a free cuppa courtesy of DAF Trucks: New Hollies in Cannock and Holyhead, Chippenham Pitstop, Route 74 Truckstop in Lesmahagow, and Ashford Truckstop. The offer is being promoted through DAF Trucks’ Social Media channels, flyers and digital advertising at the above-mentioned locations.

It is hoped the modest gesture, while small in intrinsic value, goes some of the way to show the enormous appreciation for the outstanding contribution from drivers during the current difficulties faced by society.

DAF Trucks Marketing Manager, Phil Moon said:

Sure, a free cup of coffee is a small thank-you for a massive effort from drivers, but, sometimes, it’s the little gestures that can mean a great deal to an individual; even simply putting the kettle on. DAF Trucks is enormously grateful to the truck driving community for its contribution – we always have been – but in the face of an incredible challenge that presents itself today, their work is brought into even sharper focus and is absolutely fundamental to the national effort to stem, and beat, the coronavirus outbreak.
