The lead-up to Christmas isn’t an easy time to be a truckie, with long hours and extra time pressures causing a lot of stress.
On top of that, many truckies don’t even have the luxury of taking Christmas day off after a tough year on the roads.
If you’re one of those drivers working December 25, there is at least something of a silver lining, as Healthy Heads in Trucks and Sheds has teamed up with BP to offer you a free Christmas dinner.
To claim your meal, you must be working in the road transport, warehousing or logistics industries on Christmas day.
Dinners are available at participating BP sites, and all you have to do is show that you have downloaded the Healthy Heads app on your device.
A list of participating sites be found here as well as on the app.
Menu options include roast pork with crackle, baked and steamed vegetables, gravy and apple sauce, or baked turkey with baked and steamed vegetables, gravy and cranberry sauce.
A dessert of warm Christmas pudding with vanilla custard will also be provided to hungry truckies.
A statement announcing the initiative said: “BP and Healthy Heads would like to thank workers across the road transport, warehousing and logistics industries, and those who move goods across Australia year-round.
“So, to help those working on Christmas day look after themselves, we’re giving Healthy Heads app users a free Christmas day meal.”
Shane Langford, senior dealer manager at bp Australia, added that BP aims to improve working conditions for transport and logistics workers through its ongoing partnership with Healthy Heads in Trucks and Sheds.
“By supporting drivers on the roads this Christmas, I hope that we are making a difference to their overall wellbeing and lightening the mental load.”
Meals are available from 11am to 8pm (AEDT, AEST, as applicable) on Monday December 25, while stocks last. Meal options may vary per site.
Please note, these sites are not doing meals over the Christmas period; BP Outbound Somerton, BP Laverton, BP Potts Hill, BP Energy, BP Yabulu and BP Torbanlea.
