Daniel Shaw

DANIEL Shaw is aged just 22 and wants to be a truckie for the rest of his life.

The friendly Daniel works for his dad David Shaw, a small fleet owner and veteran truckie, who owns Shawry's Bobcat and Tipper Hire Pty Ltd based at Deeragun, north of Townsville.

Big Rigs saw Daniel at the Camp Quality Convoy for Kids family day at the Townsville Showgrounds on August 18.

He drives several trucks including a Nissan UD and hauls road base and other material around north Queensland.

"We have four trucks and I get around Townsville mainly and really love the work. It is great to support the Convoy for Kids and we also participated in 2011," he said.

Convoy for Kids spokeswoman Dorothy Cunningham was glowing in her praise of Daniel.
