Payroll Giving Arriva London staff celebrate in the 2017 Lord Mayor’s Show

  
  

This year’s Lord Mayor’s Show, on 11th November, was an amazing cause for celebration, not only to welcome in the new Lord Mayor, but also to celebrate another year of Platinum giving by our wonderfully generous Payroll Givers. Each and every week, over 1,000 of our staff give to more than 160 charities through our Payroll Giving scheme. To date, they have contributed over £1,000,000 to their chosen charities.

To recognise this achievement, Arriva London invited 40 of these generous givers to march in the Lord Mayor’s Show, accompanying our historic open top Routemaster, RMC 1464. The names of all the Payroll Givers were entered into a draw and the first 40 invited to join the show.

The bus, decorated with balloons and panels giving details of some of the Payroll Givers and the reasons they give, escorted the staff along the route as they distributed gifts to the crowds.

We also asked several of the charities that receive these donations to accompany us in the parade and were delighted that Stormy Stan from the RNLI, Bernard Bear from Great Ormond Street Hospital and dogs & representatives from the Dogs Trust were able to join us.

This is the fourth year we have participated in the show, and our Payroll Givers who attended both this year and in the past were delighted with the experience. As Helen, who’s a giver to both a cancer charity and the Dogs Trust, said:

"Giving to charities through Payroll Giving is very rewarding, and having the opportunity to be part of this fantastic show is just incredible. But the lovely thing for me was meeting the people from the Dogs Trust who bought a little dog called Geoff, who needs a home, along with them. The parade was fantastic to be a part of, and I was really surprised how many people came out to see it."

Our Commercial Director Peter Batty, who was there to support the staff, said:

"The Lord Mayor’s Show is a great way to celebrate the amazing charitable support our staff provide through Payroll Giving, and to see them here with their families and friends demonstrates the great community spirit they bring to both their lives and their work, and I am immensely proud of them."
