A Norfolk shopper has paid tribute to her late father by naming a Nisa lorry after him as part of the group’s 40th birthday celebrations.

Alice Lightning entered the competition to win the chance to name a lorry after seeing it on the Nisa Locally website in May.

This week her father’s named was unveiled on the truck outside her local Nisa shop, East Runton Stores, near Cromer in north Norfolk.

Alice said: “I’m absolutely thrilled. My lovely late Dad worked hard all his life and this is a fantastic tribute to him.”

Store owner and Nisa member Steve Bacon said: “It’s great that one of our customers, Alice, has won in the name the Nisa lorry competition and such a lovely thing to do in honour of her father.

“Shopping locally can have that personal touch and has many other advantages. Recently through MADL (Making a Difference Locally) we were able to present cheques to two local charities - Danbury Unit at Halsey House and to About with Friends. We really are part of the community.”

The Name a Nisa Lorry initiative was launched as part of the 40th anniversary celebrations of Nisa Retail and will see 40 lorries named after Nisa customers and their friends and family who were nominated via an online competition.
