On Sunday 12th September 2010, Keltruck Ltd attended their customer’s, Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service’s, annual Women’s Driving Challenge at Newark Showground, Nottinghamshire.
The event gave women the opportunity to drive a variety of new and exciting vehicles, such as Fire Engines, HGV vehicles, hovercrafts and emergency service call out Range Rovers, all in aid of the “Fire Fighters Charity”.
Keltruck supplied their new R-Series demo vehicle for the show and joined up with Scania’s hospitality showtrailer which turned out to be the heart of the show. Drivers and guests took their time to relax with a beverage in the hospitality suite enjoying pleasant views of the show in the sunshine.
Keltruck staff including Nottingham Depot Manager, Graham Page, Newark Depot Manager, Mark Lucas, New Sales Account Manager, Ivor Morris, Recycling Engineer, John Maiden & Marketing Assistants, Ginette Maiden, Charlotte Brew & Chris Glover were ready and waiting to greet drivers and guests to make them feel welcome as soon as they entered the grounds.
The show was later accompanied by Nottinghamshire County Council’s Chairman, Tom Pettengell (pictured right), who said he was “very pleased”, with the turnout and success of the event.
Robert Clarke, Fleet Maintenance Manager of Nottingham Fire & Rescue and organiser of the event, was later able to confirm that they had managed to raise in excess of £15,000 for the “Fire Fighters Charity”, which was a remarkable success.
