Lorry-load of smiles for special needs youngsters
Lorry drivers treat local children with annual truck trip
TRUCKERS helped provide a lorry-load of smiles for special needs youngsters on Saturday.
A convoy of around 30 lorries set off from Roundswell to take children from Barnstaple’s Highfield House development centre on a day out to remember.
Youngster and their parents or carers were able to climb into the cab before trucking down the A39 to the BIG Sheep attraction near Bideford.
The annual convoy has been run by South West Truckers since 1999 but was taken on by the Road Haulage Association this year.
