DAF must have had a good year.  Not only giving away tea & coffee to drivers during lockdown, but now adding mince pies to the mix for a Christmas celebration.

The philanthropic bunch from Haddenham is giving away teas, coffee and mince pies to any driver who simply asks for one – even if they aren’t behind the wheel of a DAF from the 19th to the 24th of December.  Check out the list of participating truck stops below.

DAF Free Cuppa
Ten participating Truckstops sign-up to DAF Trucks initiative

Whilst the conditions may not be quite as bad as during the first lockdown for drivers, there are still plenty of restrictions to contend with in their daily operations.  During the first lockdown, DAF Trucks gave away 2,000 hot drinks over two separate weekends earlier and are hoping for a similar takeup this time.

The festive free cuppa offer is being promoted through DAF Trucks’ Social Media channels, flyers and digital advertising at participating locations.

From 19th to 24th December, drivers visiting the following ten Truckstops may simply simply ask for a free cuppa and a mince pie courtesy of DAF Trucks:

– Avon Lodge Truckstop in Avonmouth       – Junction 29 Truckstop in Chesterfield

– Lymm Truckwash                                       – Roadking in Cannock (Hollies)

– Roadking in Holyhead                                 – Chippenham Pitstop

– Route 74 Truckstop in Lesmahagow         – Ashford Truckstop

– Junction 38 Truckstop in Orton                 – Lockerbie Lorry Park

“We’re very fortunate to have the support and goodwill of the participating Truckstops,” said DAF Trucks’ Marketing Manager, Phil Moon, “collectively, we want to show our gratitude to the many thousands of drivers whose Christmases are always busy, but, this year, against the backdrop of the health emergency in the UK, their efforts are even more greatly appreciated. A free cuppa and a mince pie,” he said, “is a small token, but I hope it reminds drivers that they certainly in our thoughts at this special time of year.”
