This is awesome! Please vote for Naomi Gwynne in the UK National Diversity Awards in the Positive Role Model category
Have you heard about the National Diversity Awards? (http://www.nationaldiversityawards.co.uk/)
For those that haven’t heard they are a prestigious award ceremony for individuals, charities and organisations within the UK who are promoting and making the world a more diverse and inclusive society. They were launched in 2012 and have huge sponsors including Microsoft and endorsed by many celebrities.
I was aware of them through social media when both a charity I support and a friend I know where both nominated last year and I had the honour of seeing both get through to the finals and attend the awards night. It looked amazing!
Imagine my utter surprise then when a few weeks ago an email appeared in my inbox from the National Diversity Awards informing me that my 9 year old daughter had been nominated for this incredible award this year! In fact I was so shocked I had to call…

I am out numbered in my house. With three out of four of my family diagnosed with autism I am the only ‘neuro-typical ’ (fancy word for not being autistic). It means I am the only one who would actually want to break the routine to socialise with friends on an evening rather than sit in silence watching you tube after the kids go to bed and I would actually love to have a night without the same regimented routine the kids need to cope. I am not fussed about things having to be in absolute straight lines, I would not watch the same you tube clip a million times and I would happily have a shower at any time of day without it bothering me in any way. Having said that I do what it takes to keep us all happy and I adore the three unique and wonderful…

A little introduction to the hard working Rod Hannifey
My name is Rod Hannifey and I am an Aussie truckie. My normal run is Dubbo to Melbourne and then to Brisbane and back to Dubbo, so across three states each week, around 4000 kilometres. I am an employed driver working for Rod Pilon Transport, but drive the TRUCKRIGHT Industry Vehicle, which aims to show another side to how truckies are all too often portrayed by the media and then, so perceived by the public.
We have some magnificent looking trucks running up and down Australia’s highways, some promoting tractors, or vineyards or products on their trailer curtains, but none which promoted the road transport industry or road safety. My dream was to see such a vehicle, a working truck, that also tried to show a different side to the job. The photos on the side depict many sizes and types of trucks and includes road safety messages and industry information.

I’d like to bring this blog to your attention – I’m honoured to know Rod Hannifey. I first met Rod when he was driving for Toll Liquid Distribution – he would deliver petrol and diesel first then come out to my work and collect 40,000 litres of tallow from our rendering/by-products plant. I’ve admired Rod’s amazing work with the Truckright Industry Vehicle (in the original and now the MkII version, both of which Rod drives for Rod Pilon Transport out of Dubbo, NSW, Australia).
Rod has won a prestigious Churchill Fellowship for his work in safety in road transport – this blog will be used to feature parts of his European trip showing road safety – check it out here: TRUCKRIGHT – Blog
