To celebrate the Christmas truck tour, Coca-Cola has uncovered Britain’s ‘Kindness Hotspots’ – towns and cities across Great Britain where people having been going above and beyond to bring joy to others.
But Lincoln and towns within the county are not kind enough to be included in the list of ‘Kindness Hotspots’ and the truck will not be pulling in to stop here.
The nearest stops to Lincoln are Hull, Sheffield and Derby.
Coca-Cola surveyed over 2,500 people living on the Coca-Cola Christmas truck tour route, to discover the good deeds and kind acts the people of Britain are doing for each other, with each stop sharing its own heart-warming stories.
According to Coke’s research Londoners are a reliable bunch – one told Coca-Cola they drove for 3 hours through the snow to bring their partner home for Christmas.
People in Ely scored highly across the board, and topped the list of those who would invite an elderly relative or neighbour into their homes for Christmas if they were going to be alone say Coca-Cola.
A Coca-cola spokesperson said: “We wanted to pack in visits to as many parts of the country as possible during the Christmas period as well as visit special Christmas shopping days and events in some city centres.
“After many months of planning we created the best route, unfortunately we can’t visit everywhere but we hope that with this amount of stops across the whole of the country we’ve reached as many people as we can.”
