The Story Behind Girl Torque

In the summer of 2021, trucker Karen Sutherland gathered a group of inspiring women she met during her years in the haulage industry to challenge stereotypes about females in the field. They formed a messenger group, chose charities to support, and created a calendar featuring photos of themselves at work. Karen distributed the first 1000 copies across the country, and online sales were managed by two members. The initiative gained momentum, leading to the sale of another 1000 calendars. By January, they raised an impressive £25,500 for six charities. Encouraged by this success, the group established Girl Torques as a business with the goal of normalising and promoting hardworking women in the transport industry while continuing to support charitable causes. They eventually aimed to obtain charity status for their organisation.

In 2023, Girl Torque raised an impressive £40,000, enabling them to present four £10,000 cheques to their supported charities: Mind Mental Health, Maggies Cancer Support, The Dogs Trust, and The Alzheimer’s Society. This brought their total contributions to a remarkable £65,500 in just two years. The anticipation is high for what 2024 might bring for the organisation.
