Big hearted Leyland Trucks workforce offer helping hands to charitable causes

Manufacturing engineering manager, Barry Hodgson, who celebrates 50 years of service, said: “I started as a young lad at Leyland Motors. It was very different in those days as we manufactured a lot of the components that went into the trucks and buses we built. “

Factories were spread through Leyland and further beyond, and the business offered me many opportunities. Through the years much has changed and I have worked in several areas of the business. I have some fond memories and I am still adding to them.”
