October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. RoadStars had a chat with driver Kirsty from Maze Logistic Solutions to find out about why her new truck now wears it pink for Breast Cancer Awareness.
Kirsty has been driving many makes and models of trucks throughout her time on the road. Trucking for 19 years, she’s never driven a truck quite like this before.
Maze Logistic Solutions are doing their bit for charity. With a fleet of 15 Mercedes-Benz Actros, and only one breast cancer truck. Company director Steve Snelling decided he wanted to support a charity.
So, when Kirsty’s previous truck came to the end of its lease, Steve suggested a pink ribbon theme for her new vehicle - The Actros was supplied by Rob Dale from Mercedes-Benz Trucks Dealer Orwell Truck and Van. Kirsty immediately loved the idea! Now, the company contributes to local events such as carnivals, loaning vehicles for free, and fundraising for the charities Prostate Cancer UK and Breast Cancer Now.
The advanced safety technology of The Actros was the main selling point, with the Active Brake Assist 5, which can perform emergency braking when approaching stationary and moving objects, and perform partial or full braking for moving pedestrians.
Kirsty suggested how pink highlights could be added to the truck and even convincing Steve that the pink ribbon would look much better on a ‘gun-metal grey paint job’ rather than the company’s usual white design. She even had her nails painted to match for the occasion, adding a pink ribbon to her manicure.
There aren’t many trucks on the road like Kirsty’s, a rare sight indeed – the pink ribbon highlights make it a unique vehicle which is why Maze Logistic Solutions is running a fantastic fundraising competition this October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Spot the truck and share a photo on the Maze Logistics Solutions Facebook page, and for each photo Maze will make a generous donation to the UK's largest breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Now - https://lnkd.in/gMHazwC
