Arriva London win Most Innovative Campaign award at this year's National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards Ceremony
Arriva London's colleagues make an enormous contribution to various charities through the Payroll Giving scheme, and by telling their generous stories, Arriva London was able to create their award winning campaign.
The campaign featured individual stories of why these employees had wanted to give to their chosen charities.
Peter Batty, the Commercial Director of Arriva London, said "It's a great honour to win this award and to receive it on behalf of all our staff who contribute weekly to Payroll Giving, without which the campaign would not have been successful."
As well as winning this award, Arriva London were fortunate to win a Gold Award through Payroll Giving, and in 2016 are looking to achieve a Platinum award.
