Lorry nam­ing hon­our for young Ethan

Midweek Visiter - - Lorry Naming Honour For Young Ethan -

CHRIST­MAS came early for a lit­tle boy from Mersey­side when Nisa named a lorry af­ter him as part of a spe­cial event ar­ranged in his hon­our.

Five-year-old Ethan Ma­son, from Crosby, is mad about any­thing with wheels and es­pe­cially loves lor­ries – so a truck with his name printed on the front, and the chance to sit in the cab and honk the horn, was the per­fect gift.

The event, hosted at the Nisa Lo­cal in Park Lane, Boo­tle, was ar­ranged to brighten up Christ­mas for Ethan who is bat­tling Bat­tens Dis­ease and is ex­pect­ing a tough year ahead.

Di­ag­nosed a year ago, af­ter start­ing to demon­strate de­vel­op­men­tal prob­lems at the age of 18 months, Ethan’s doc­tors have told his par­ents Shane and Tracey to ex­pect the next 12 months to be dif­fi­cult with Ethan likely to lose his sight as well as the abil­ity to walk and talk.

And Ethan’s face lit up when he sat in the truck with his mum and was then wel­comed in­store by Santa Claus who pre­sented him with some early Christ­mas gifts in­clud­ing a minia­ture Nisa lorry.

Ethan’s mum Tracey Ros­siter said: “It’s been such a lovely treat.

“Ethan loves any­thing with wheels and this is such a fan­tas­tic gift for him.”

The nam­ing of the lorry fol­lows on from Nisa’s 40th birth­day cel­e­bra­tions in 2017 which saw 40 de­liv­ery lor­ries named af­ter 40 Nisa cus­tomers as part of a shop­per com­pe­ti­tion.
