Payroll Giving in action as Arriva London goes for a Diamond Award in 2018

  
  

Doing the right thing, one of our four brand values, is what we have been doing for the last six years by encouraging all of our employees to give to their favourite charities through our Payroll Giving scheme - during this time, they have given more than £1,000,000 pounds to over 160 charities.

As part of the support process, we place £1,000 in a fund each quarter and give our Payroll Givers the chance to win four cheques of £250 to give to their chosen charity - every giver is automatically entered.

In 2017, we won the Charity Aid Foundation’s coveted Platinum Award for having over twenty percent of our staff in the scheme: the only bus company to have achieved this. This year, the bar has been placed even higher with the introduction of CAF’s new 'Diamond Award', which requires over thirty percent of staff to be in the scheme.

Our target for 2018 is to at least maintain our Platinum status, but to encourage enough new staff to join Payroll Giving so that we reach the thirty percent level and achieve the 'Diamond Award'.

The campaign theme again is 'It's easy to give with Payroll Giving, your colleagues do it every day' which will be promoted through weekly road shows at each of the company’s seventeen London garages, together with poster and video campaigns, telling givers' stories.

This year, we also plan to invite charities that are supported by our staff to visit our garages to meet with our givers, and we have already booked a place in November's Lord Mayor's Show - where traditionally we have one of our Heritage Fleet buses accompanied by at least forty of our Payroll Givers, to show the public what Payroll Giving In Action is all about, and celebrate our success.

Our platinum bus, HV 64, will again be out on routes across the Capital, repeating the Platinum Payroll Giving message, and we will continue to develop the campaign with new giver's stories both on this website and with our video messages.

Payroll Giving In Action has recently quoted Arriva London as 'the leading Payroll Giving employer', directing their followers to view our latest video kicking off our 2018 campaign.

If you’re an Arriva London employee thinking of giving to charity, then come on & join Payroll Giving here.

Arriva London’s Grays garage double-decker bus visits Newbury Park Primary School

Going to school is something we all had to do, but going to school with a red London double-decker bus, and letting four classes from year one come on board to ask questions about the bus, is a privilege we experienced this week at Newbury Park Primary School in North East London.
