Solstor Keep On Trucking Against Cancer

Solstor, part of the AG Thames group, a specialist in global supply and distribution, has raised over £12,000 to help fight cancer.

With support from actor and local celebrity Warwick Davis, the company has so far raised £12,300 for The Pink Ribbon Foundation, a grant making trust that helps raise awareness and funds to fight breast cancer.

A Family Fun Day on Sunday 19th October kicked off the year-long fundraising activity and saw Solstor turn one of its recognisable blue and white lorries bright pink in support for the charity.

The Pink Lady will transport fresh, chilled and frozen food products the length and breadth of the country and it is estimated that over 5 million people will see her, raising great awareness for The Pink Ribbon Foundation.

Julie Church, a Solstor driver commented: “A friend and I had the idea for The Pink Lady after wanting to bring a splash of pink into the otherwise male dominated world of logistics.

“It’s amazing to see her out on the road and I can’t wait to spread the word about The Pink Ribbon Foundation and the fantastic work they do.

“If you see me on the roads please toot your horn in support!”

As part of their fundraising efforts the Solstor team recently completed a gruelling 100-mile sponsored cycle across the south east of England and have many other activities planned over the next 12 months to help raise crucial funds.

Graham Doe, Managing Director at Solstor commented: “The family fun day brought Solstor and the local community together.

“Everyone wanted to take a picture with the truck and there was loads of fun activities for kids to take part in as well.

“The crowd was fantastic and greeted our riders who finished their 100 mile sponsored cycle with lots of support at the end of their ride.”

Check out the Solstor and The Pink Lady Facebook page for the trucks’ latest adventures and please share your Pink Lady story by sending it with your pictures to truckphotos@solstor.com and some of the more unusual and funny stories will be posted on Facebook.
