HGV Drivers Vote For Inverness

THE WINNER of the UK’s Kindest Town, voted for by hauliers and HGV drivers, has been announced as Inverness, winning them a cash prize of £10,000. The campaign, a joint effort between the Road Haulage Association (RHA) and transport software provider Mandata, started in April and has gathered more than 1,000 votes across the country.
The aim of the campaign was to improve attitudes towards HGV drivers whilst raising awareness of the need to improve truck stop facilities across the country. The campaign also sought to highlight that treating drivers with kindness goes a long way to improving their mental health.
Richard Smith, RHA MD, said: “It was the pandemic that really raised awareness of the industry among the public, after all it was the truckers that kept shelves full and ensured that medical staff were equipped with vital PPE. This is why I’m pleased that government has recognised the need for improved facilities for drivers and that they have agreed to match the investment made by truck stops to improve their facilities.”
The RHA and Mandata will be working with the town of Inverness to support them as they select a community project that will benefit most from the donation.
