Louise Macdon­ald

Big Rigs - - TRUCKIN’ IN THE TROPICS WITH ALF WILSON -

YOUNG driver Louise Macdon­ald had a huge smile on her face when Big Rigs saw her mak­ing de­liv­er­ies to the Townsville sub­urb of Dou­glas on July 3.

Aged 32, Louise works for Coles and was unloading food from a Hino to a cafe.

“I pack the or­ders at the Coles Aitken­vale Su­per­mar­ket and then de­liver it to cus­tomers around Townsville and some­times to the Bur­dekin towns of Ayr and Home Hill,” she said.

When off work, Louise plays in­door net­ball and also had been a rugby union for­ward for West­ern Sub­urbs in the Townsville and District women’s com­pe­ti­tion.

Louise doesn’t bar­rack for any par­tic­u­lar football team.

“My part­ner sup­ports the Essendon Bombers in the AFL and the Syd­ney Roost­ers in the NRL,” Louise said.

Friendly Louise said she was a full-time worker who had been in the job for two years.

“There is a lot of va­ri­ety in my job from fill­ing the or­ders from the shelves, pack­ing them and then de­liv­er­ing to homes and busi­nesses. I get to meet a lot of dif­fer­ent peo­ple,” Louise said.

And it is that va­ri­ety that for Louise, makes the job worth­while.
