Charity Marathon a great success for staff from Arriva London South garages
On Sunday 9th August 2009, staff from the six south London Arriva Garages joined in a charity marathon, to raise money for St.George's Hospital Baby Unit and Demelza Children's Hospice.
The event organised by Phil Robson from Norwood Garage, consisted of a team of five from each garage, walking from one garage to the next, carrying charity buckets to collect money on the way. The walkers were joined by two runners and five ladies from Norwood garage who completed the whole sixteen miles, visiting every garage en route.
The walk started from Arriva's Battersea Garage at 11:30 and finished at South Croydon, with the last walker crossing the line at 17:15. A marshal at each garage was on hand to check on the competitors and hand out chilled water.
Elaine Evans, a cleaner from South Croydon garage, walked the whole way raising the most from sponsorship with a total of £1,385.
The whole event raised over £2,500 for the two charities. Phil Robson said. "It was a great success and everyone should be proud of their efforts. Hopefully it will become an annual event."

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.
