Steve is the Pride of Blackburn!


Blackburn's brilliant driver Steve Holmes is the third winner of the Pride of the North Cup - our award dedicated to recognising our colleagues for their amazing customer service and driving skills!

Steve's friendly welcome and skills behind the wheel have made him a favourite amongst our customers, and he's been awarded the Pride of the North Cup as a result of our latest mystery shopper scores. 

Our CEO Alex Hornby and Head of Delivery Vitto Pizzutti caught Steve by surprise as they flagged him down whilst he was driving his bus on the 7 to present him with the Cup, his certificate and £50 worth of Amazon vouchers!

Steve received a huge round of applause and big smiles all round from the people on his bus when he received the award - he's clearly a hit with his customers!

Steve also gets his name engraved onto the Pride of the North Cup, and he goes straight through to the finals for the Driver of the Year prize at our annual Amazing Awards. 

Who'll be next to take home the Pride of the North Cup?
