Arriva ladies 'in the pink'
More than 40 women from all over Arriva London met at Enfield’s Trent Park on June 21 to take part in ‘Race for Life’.
Thought to represent every grade that women occupy in the company, they are hoping to raise “as much as possible” for Cancer Research UK.
The Arriva team was organised by Wood Green performance manager Michela Peccolo and customer services manager Linda Saunders, it is the first time such a large number of women from Arriva London have come together for the annual event.
Regardless of their fitness levels they all managed to finish the 5 kilometre course.
Linda said “Some of our colleagues trained to run or jog the course, but others like me were happy to just walk it.”
“Virtually every family is touched by cancer at some time and we’re just doing our bit to raise money for research into treating it.
“It was a fantastic achievement and it was great to see our team wearing their pink Arriva tee shirts. It was like a party atmosphere with people cheering and families enjoying picnics and music on the grass.”

Last June, Arriva London was delighted to have been re-awarded the TfL contract to run route W6 (Edmonton Green – Southgate Station) for a further five years, starting in January 2018 with brand new buses.
Reporting to the Purchasing, Stores and Administration Manager, this vacancy is for an experienced Storekeeper with Administrative experience, based at our Grays garage. You will support the garage team by ensuring an efficient supply of vehicle parts for the maintenance teams. This role is a 6 to 12 month maternity cover contract.
We currently have a vacancy for a Garage Supervisor in Enfield.
This is a key role within the organisation and the work is wide ranging, interesting and vital to the smooth running of the garage and its performance.
As the festive season approaches, we all look forward to the good-will of giving and receiving, and this was truly illustrated last week when members of our staff made a tour of London, on our open top bus, to meet representatives of some of their charities they give to through their Payroll Giving and celebrate #GivingTuesday.
Arriva London scooped three awards at the National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards held in November.
