At Arriva London, we are committed to spreading the word of Payroll Giving to all of our staff, and with this in mind, for the last three years have developed a promotional campaign to do just that. It is therefore with enormous pride that we can announce, that at the recent National Payroll Giving Exellence awards, we won the award for the Most Innovative Campaign by a Medium size employer, and were Highly Commended in the Best Promotional Partnership and Most Sustained Scheme categories.

The campaign theme ‘It’s easy to give with Payroll Giving, your colleagues do it every day’ which won the award, has been promoted through weekly road shows at each of the company’s seventeen London garages, together with a poster and video campaign, telling givers’ stories and responses from the charities that are the recipients.

All participants in the scheme enter a company quarterly draw which gives four winners each a cheque from Arriva London for £250 for their chosen charity.

All givers are also entered into a ballot, giving them the chance to be one of the participants in Arriva London’s Lord Mayor’s Show entry, which this year featured the Arriva London’s Heritage Fleet open top Routemaster RMC 1464.

This was accompanied by one of our modern Hybrid buses HV 64, which had been painted Platinum, to mark the company winning the Charity Aid Foundation’s Platinum award for Payroll Giving. This is awarded to organisations who have achieved twenty percent or more of their staff giving to charity through a Payroll Giving scheme. Arriva London is the only bus operator to hold these prestigious awards.

Peter Batty, our Commercial Director, said:-

“We are delighted to have won this award and are continuing to develop the campaign going forward. Currently we are celebrating achieving the Platinum QM with a bus in unique livery to share the achievement of our staff with millions of people who use and see our buses everyday. Achieving this award for Most Innovative Campaign and the Platinum QM is something we are very proud of and provides sustainable income for hundreds of charities."
