Blunkett does the Honours

Driver Hire Sheffield welcomed a very special visitor to their new office – David Blunkett, the former Home Secretary and MP for Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough. The office, which is owned by Robert Leek and Ian Leadbeater has moved to smart new premises in the SOAR Enterprise Centre in Parson Green, a Sheffield suburb.


“Over the past couple of years Parson Cross has benefited from a massive regeneration programme,” says Robert. “The SOAR Centre is a social enterprise offering affordable quality workspace to a wide variety of businesses. The aim is that it will bring jobs into the area, creating a sustainable local economy. As a recruitment company we’re an essential part of that process, hence our decision to move here. One of our drivers is a local councillor and former Sheffield Lord Mayor. He suggested we contact Mr Blunkett’s office and ask him if he’d do us the honour of officially opening our office. Obviously we’re delighted that he recognises the importance of our work and took the time out of his busy schedule to be with us.”
