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.”

We have the ambition to become the mobility partner of choice, preferred by our passengers, partners and clients. Having a diverse, talented and motivated workforce is key to achieving that ambition.
We are always looking at ways to improve our green credentials and a recent initiative, part of our Destination Green programme across the business, at our North London Palmers Green garage is another illustration of this process.
Last summer, we were delighted to be awarded the contract from TfL to operate route W4 running from Oakthorpe Park Estate to Tottenham Ferry Lane estate, operating from Wood Green garage.
We are currently looking to recruit an AGS to cover Garage Supervisor (GS) duties primarily at Thornton Heath, but also at other Arriva London garages where required.
We have a vacancy for a Duty Manager, Dartford.
