Van leasing company, Vanarama, is launching a campaign to find and reward the UK’s top Van Hero 2017.  The award is in celebration of independent van driving businesses across the country.  It provides a platform for people to nominate their favourite local van hero, no matter what their trade or industry; be they a same day courier or florist, plumber or builder.  The company is encouraging people to nominate their local van hero, or bullish businesses can even nominate themselves!

Andy Alderson, MD and founder of Vanarama says, “We want to encourage people to vote for tradespeople in their local communities because they are the backbone of this nation. Far too often van drivers receive negative publicity for the wrong reasons but really, the majority of UK van drivers are hardworking people, running their own businesses and following their dreams. We have created these awards to celebrate entrepreneurialism in Britain and will reward the overall winner with a complimentary three year van lease or £5,000 prize.”

Vanarama is encouraging people to vote for their local van hero across 11 UK regions (Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, North West, North East, Yorkshire, East Midlands, West Midlands, South East, London, East Anglia) before crowning the UK’s ultimate champion of the small business community in a national final in October 2017.
