Convoy for carers: Lorry drivers show their support for NHS

Twenty different vehicles drove around the town of Laurencekirk, beeping their horns to show their support to key workers.

The owners of a haulage company in Laurencekirk came up with a creative way of supporting the NHS along with all the other essential workers.

As the country gets together to clap for frontline workers every Thursday night, Sarah Slessor and her family – owners of Douglas F Mitchell Ltd – started driving around their town with just two lorries, while beeping their horns and flashing their lights.

Since then, the local community got involved and last night they had approximately 20 different vehicles parading around the streets in a convoy.

Sarah said: “The locals have shown great community spirt and they say it is the highlight of the week.”
