Truck rolls in to shopping mall

Have your say

HOLIDAYS are coming to Sheffield.

The Coca-Cola truck which stars in television adverts and is considered by some as the unofficial launch to the countdown to Christmas, will roll into Meadowhall Shopping Centre on Friday.

Festive cheer will be in full swing when the bright-red vehicle parks up at the taxi rank outside the entrance of Next and Argos at 1pm. The centre will create a winter wonderland to welcome the truck, while an on-board Christmas choir will lead a selection of seasonal carols in the magical setting, led by Jay Kamiraz, winner of The Prince’s Trust Young Achiever Award 2012.

Zoe Howorth, marketing director for Coca-Cola, said: “We’re looking forward to spreading the holiday spirit and kick-starting the celebrations.”
