UKWOTY Winner Sets Off Across Country...In a Harvester!

UKWOTY Winner Sets Off Across Country...In a Harvester!

Being recognised as the Dickies UK Worker of the Year is no small feat and is awarded to those who put hard work into practice. Proving this theory is last year’s winner, Judi James. Yesterday, the 2013 Worker of the Year winner set out to drive a combine harvester across South England for charity.

James, 54, departed yesterday from Wimbledon, in South West London, and is making her way over 150 miles (240 kilometers) across the English country-side to her home town of Littlebreddy in Dorset, where she should arrive on Wednesday.

James will be raising money for Breast Cancer Awareness, of which she says, “I’ve always been a keen supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness and I had this dream to drive a combine harvester from London to Dorset. I still cannot believe it is going ahead but I hope people will get behind me and we can raise some money for a good cause”.

Sales and Marketing Director at Dickies, Maurice Morton, has spoken about James’ admirable charity challenge and says, “It’s fantastic to see Judi going ahead with her goal to raise money for her chosen charity. Dickies is fully behind her initiative and will do all we can to help her over the three days.”

James started her charity challenge yesterday, from Wimbledon Common just before 2pm and will wind her way to Dorset to arrive late tomorrow afternoon.
