Coca-Cola Christmas truck is coming to Whiteley this year
The iconic Coca-Cola truck will be stopping off in Whiteley this Christmas as part of its UK tour.
The truck will be at Whiteley Shopping Centre on Friday November 29 and Saturday November 30, allowing fans to get a photo of the festive vehicle and grab a can of refreshing Coca-Cola.
In the last couple of years the UK tour had stopped off in Southampton but this time around fans closer to Portsmouth will get a chance to get a glimpse of the truck.
Kris Robbens, marketing director at Coca-Cola Great Britain and Ireland, said: ‘Christmas is all about sharing special moments with friends and loved ones and we’re looking forward to spreading the festive cheer across Great Britain again this year with our iconic Coca- Cola Christmas Truck Tour.’
The UK tour will start on Friday November 15, and includes 19 stops nationwide before the truck makes its final stop in London on Saturday December 15.
For the first time this year Coca-Cola has partnered with national homelessness charity Crisis, with 10p being donated by the drinks brand for every can recycled by visitors on the tour.
Jon Sparkes, chief executive at Crisis, said: ‘Everyone in our society should have a safe and secure home. But right now, many people are denied this basic human need. None of us should be facing the prospect of a Christmas without a home.
‘We know that ending homelessness is absolutely possible. We’re delighted to be working with Coca-Cola throughout its iconic Christmas Truck Tour and receiving a donation that will help us to continue to be there for the people that need us, both at Christmas and all year round.’
The truck will be open each day from 12pm with the queue for entry closing at 7pm.
