Arriva London volunteers walk for charity in the Lord Mayor’s Show 2014

  
  

Only occasionally does an opportunity come along to see the very best in people, and that opportunity came last Saturday at the Lord Mayor’s Show, where over 7,000 people paraded through the streets of the City of London to celebrate their charitable works and the inauguration of the new Lord Mayor.

Fifty-five of those people were from Arriva London, and all of them were there in recognition of their great and continued efforts to raise money for their chosen charities, with the help of Arriva and Payroll Giving.

Each year Arriva London looks at ways of giving back to the community it serves, and for this year chose to focus their celebrations for TfL’s ‘2014 The Year of The Bus’ activities through its employees, and the great work they do for their local communities and charities by promoting and supporting Payroll Giving. Arriva administers the scheme on behalf of its staff but also runs a draw every quarter and gives cash sums to those in the scheme to add to their donations.

Arriva’s Payroll Givers were also entered into a draw to have the privilege of being part of the Lord Mayor’s parade and accompanying the Arriva Heritage Fleet iconic Routemaster bus through the streets of the City.

The bus displayed ads for Payroll Giving, which featured the very same fundraisers walking with the bus, all of whom had volunteered to be part of this great campaign. A replica scale model of the bus has been commissioned. If you would like to buy one, they are available from our shop.
