The Wright Room Charter

In memory of David Wright

30 April 1961 – 9 December 2014

David, a key member of the Nightcap team, fought for decent single room accommodation for drivers on skiing and other trips abroad.  At the time of his death, a plan to produce a driver’s charter to establish a minimum standard for rooms used by coach drivers was under way, with the aim of ensuring all drivers would be able to rest, relax and crucially, get undisturbed sleep. With permission from David’s family, it has been agreed to call this document The Wright Room Charter.
