CHARITY AUCTION WINNER WILL NAME EDDIE STOBART TRUCK AT MULTIMODAL AWARDS IN AID OF TRANSAID


The winning bidder and one lucky business card raffle winner will skip the usual four-year waiting list to name an Eddie Stobart Scania tractor unit

 

London, UK – Friday 31st May 2019, Eddie Stobart Logistics is helping to raise money for Transaid by donating the naming rights of one of its tractor units via a charity auction at Multimodal 2019.

The auction will be held during the FTA Multimodal Awards ceremony on Tuesday 18th June, the first evening of the Multimodal show, which takes place at the Birmingham NEC from 18-20 June 2019.

“Transaid do outstanding work which makes a real difference to people’s lives, and the Eddie Stobart team are proud to be helping them in their mission,” said Julie Daintith, Communications Manager, Eddie Stobart.

“We are excited to be participating and exhibiting at Multimodal 2019 where we will showcase all the services we offer as part of our complete end-to-end logistics solution,” said Daintith.

Transaid works to provide safe and available transport in two core areas, road safety through improving the quality of driver training in Africa, and access for rural communities to health services by strengthening transport systems.

“Eddie Stobart trucks are famous for having female-only first names and with a four-year waiting list for the honour of naming them, it’s an incredible money-can’t-buy opportunity for us to be chosen,” said Florence Bearman, Head of Fundraising, Transaid

“Hopefully the bidders will be very generous!”

Eddie Stobart has a dedicated Special Operations sector that specialises in Formula 1 transport, and a Williams F1 racing car will also be on show at the Eddie Stobart stand.

“It’s the exhibitors that make Multimodal dynamic and exciting, creating an event that is ideal for building connections and growing businesses.” said Rob Jervis, Logistics Portfolio Director, Clarion Events.

“I would like to thank Eddie Stobart and all our exhibitors for taking part and making Multimodal the UK and Ireland’s biggest logistics exhibition.”

Naming rights to a second Scania R-cab R450 will be raffled on Wednesday 19th June at 6.30pm, and visitors can enter by dropping off their business cards at the Eddie Stobart stand.
