Bluestones Supply Chain has launched this year’s popular Driver of the Year award, celebrating the people who work one of the country’s most demanding and important jobs – professional driving.

Some people take lorry drivers for granted, but our society simply could not operate without their hard work. They drive more miles in a week than most of us drive in months.

That’s why we believe it is important to recognise and reward our drivers. Throughout November our clients will be voting for the drivers who they think deserve to be recognised this year. We will then crown a Driver of the Year for Chester, Derby, Glasgow and Newcastle from a shortlist of drivers nominated by our clients. Each Driver of the Year will be awarded a £250 shopping voucher.

The winners will be announced on the 6th of December, after a whole month of celebrating the UK’s professional drivers. The winners will be announced on the Bluestones Supply Chain Facebook page.

David Brigdale, Managing Director, said,

“Professional drivers play a huge part in the UK’s economy, so we wanted to run a campaign recognising the job these dedicated men and women do day in, day out. From the food in our shops to the Christmas presents under our trees, even the clean water we drink, drivers have an impact on nearly every aspect of our lives but they are too often taken for granted. The Driver of the Year award is designed to celebrate these hardworking individuals and show our thanks for all they do.”
