AS Christmas gets closer, find out where you can spot the well-known Coca Cola Truck as the full list of stops are revealed.

However, if you want to see the festive icon in person, you are going to have to travel as the truck will not be visiting North Wales this year.

Coca-Cola announced the route for this year’s Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour today, November 12, as the vehicle best known for bringing festive cheer returns for the ninth year to spread holiday magic across the country.

The closest area to North Wales that will receive a visit from the soft drink company will be Cheshire Oaks in Ellesmere Port on December 13 and 14 from 12pm to 7pm.

The Leader previously reported on the truck’s visit to Deeside last year when dozens of people queued up to welcome Coca Cola in Queensferry.

Kris Robbens, marketing director at Coca-Cola Great Britain and Ireland, said: “Christmas is all about sharing special moments with friends and loved ones and we’re looking forward to spreading the festive cheer across Great Britain again this year with our iconic Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour.

“Whilst Christmas is a moment of celebration, it’s also incredibly important to remember those that need support throughout the season. So, we’re really pleased to partner with Crisis and whilst guests at the tour enjoy a refreshing Coca-Cola zero sugar, when they recycle their can, they’ll be helping to support an amazing charity.”

This is the first year that Coca-Cola has partnered with Crisis, a national homelessness charity, to donate 10p in exchange for each can placed in a recycling bin along the truck tour

Jon Sparkes, chief executive at Crisis, added: “Everyone in our society should have a safe and secure home. But right now, many people are denied this basic human need. None of us should be facing the prospect of a Christmas without a home.

“We know that ending homelessness is absolutely possible. We’re delighted to be working with Coca-Cola throughout its iconic Christmas Truck Tour and receiving a donation that will help us to continue to be there for the people that need us, both at Christmas and all year round.”
