Arriva London hold Macmillan Coffee Mornings in their garages
At Arriva London, we are always looking at ways to support charitable giving, both locally and in the wider community. Our staff, as part of the Payroll Giving scheme, have donated over a million pounds to charities over the past five years, so when our garage staff asked if they could support this year's Macmillan Coffee Morning, we were delighted to encourage them to do so.
As Macmillan Cancer Support suggest ...
'Catch up over a cuppa, enjoy some gorgeous treats - and the money you raise at your Coffee Morning will help us make sure no one has to face cancer alone'
... and this is precisely what our ever generous staff have done in our garages right across London.
All of our garages have what we call the 'output' - it's an area where drivers check in for their shifts and an ideal place for them to congregate and catch up, and this is where the Macmillan Coffee Mornings have taken place.
Staff baked cakes, tarts and biscuits of all sizes and tastes, lemon drizzle, Black Forest gateaux, banana cake and many, many more. From Brixton to Clapton, Enfield to Wood Green, all the garages are getting involved. Like our Tottenham garage, who this week raised £1,175 and our Stamford Hill staff who raised over £400. More garages have planned their events for next week.
Sharon, one of our drivers at Enfield who made three different cakes, said:
"I always support cancer charities for personal reasons and that's what my Payroll Giving funding goes to. However, I love baking and when this opportunity came along, I just wanted to contribute. It's such good fun and a really good cause."

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.
