Arriva London’s Payroll Giving Golden Team to feature in the 800th Lord Mayor’s Show

  
  

Preparations are well under way at Arriva London for their display entry in this year’s 800th Lord Mayor’s Show on Saturday the 14th November. The Arriva London theme this year is to celebrate the enormous contribution their staff make to charities through the Payroll Giving scheme.

Last year’s efforts gained them a prestigious Payroll Giving Gold award, and so this year, fifty members of that Gold Team will be marching with the Arriva London Heritage Fleet’s open top historic Routemaster bus RMC 1464, displaying the charities they support and encouraging their colleagues and the public to get involved as well.

Members of the team like Steve and Sharon, Elise and Peter, Jayantilal and Olakunle, all Arriva employees, all Payroll Givers, but all from different backgrounds and beliefs who won, through a ballot, the opportunity to be in the Lord Mayor’s Show procession, coming together in celebration of their common goal, giving to others.

As Elise says in praise of Payroll Giving :- “I think payroll giving is a wonderful idea. If I can help vulnerable children, that’s the best thing I can do.”

And Steve reflects on his reasons for getting involved:- “I have a family member who’s a prostate cancer survivor. Payroll giving gives us the opportunity to give back to charities that really need our help.”

Arriva London, together with Payroll Giving in Action, is currently running a promotional campaign to encourage more employees to give through the scheme, with the aim next year to hopefully win a Payroll Giving Platinum award.

We hope you will be at the Lord Mayor’s Show to view the fantastic parade, to celebrate the new Lord Mayor’s appointment, and to see the Arriva London entry.

Look out for our historic Heritage Fleet open top bus, No. 81 in the parade, but most important of all, give a wave and a cheer to our incredibly generous Arriva London Payroll Giving Golden Team.
