Already a familiar sight on the highways of Essex and London, the JKS Group have taken delivery of the newest member of their fleet. The pink livery on their new Scania Tipper immediately sets it apart from anything else on the road and will be sure to make heads turn.
After Sarah, one of their most experienced drivers recently lost her grandmother to breast cancer, the decision was taken by the company to support her in her bid to raise funds for breast cancer research.
Managing Director, Jeremy Suttling (who suggested the colour scheme) said “Our new pink tipper joins our fleet of 50 vehicles and demonstrates our commitment, not just to providing the best service to our customers, but also to acknowledge our corporate social responsibility which was one of the key reasons behind our decision to create it. We thought that a tipper was such a great advertisement, bearing in mind the number of miles it covers each year on the local road network and for such a worthwhile cause.”
Additionally, we gave support to a member of staff who had lost someone very special to her.”Jeremy Suttling, JKS Group
Known as Nanny G
The pink tipper, known as Nanny G, will be appearing at community events throughout Essex this summer and beyond where visitors will be encouraged to contribute to Sarah’s fundraising for Against Breast Cancer.
As members of the CLOCS campaign to protect vulnerable road users, the low emission Scania Tipper is fitted with the latest road safety systems including cameras and audio warnings to improve the driver’s ability to see and be seen and by pedestrians, cyclists and other motorists even on the busiest of streets.
We’re delighted to have Nanny G helping to promote our pioneering research, together with JKS Group we want to show the people of Essex we’re determined ‘to get the job done’ and create a future free from breast cancer.
