County-based logistics company Eddie Stobart is to release its first Christmas music single, featuring truckers singing a special version of Twelve Days of Christmas.

Staff travelled to Sarm Studios, in London’s Notting Hill, to record the parody, making fun references to the work Eddie Stobart does in delivering Christmas goods to the nation.

Lines from the song include “Four Frozen Turkeys”, “Ten Mince Pies” and “Seven Spotters Spotting”, referring to the 25,000 members of the Eddie Stobart Members Club.

Proceeds will be donated to the Help for Heroes charity, which was chosen because about one in ten of the firm’s drivers have served in the armed forces.

William Stobart, chief executive, said: “The drivers have worked hard recording the song and it’s for a very worthwhile cause that is close to the hearts of many of us at Eddie Stobart.

“Help for Heroes does a fantastic job in providing direct support to individuals and their families and we really want the British public to get behind this single and raise as much money as possible to ensure this important work continues.”

Eddie Stobart Truckers: 12 Days of Christmas is released on Monday December 17 and is available to pre-order from major online music retailers.
