Arriva London staff just keep on giving

  
  

Every year, Arriva London’s staff show their massive generosity through their continued charitable giving. The company runs a Payroll Giving scheme which encourages staff to easily give to any charity they choose through their payroll, for as little as one pound a week; this is also tax efficient for both the employee and the charities.

2016 is no exception, and with this in mind, Arriva London have launched a new campaign to promote Payroll Giving to those staff who are unaware of the scheme.

The campaign theme is ‘It’s easy to give with Payroll Giving; your colleagues do it every day!’. It’s being promoted through weekly road shows at each of the company’s thirteen London garages, together with a poster and video campaign which tells givers’ stories and also has responses from the charities that are the recipients.

The company currently holds a gold award for its staffs’ Payroll Giving generosity in 2015, and is looking to boost that to a platinum level for 2016.

With many more staff signing up each week, Arriva London is the largest bus operator in London to have achieved the gold quality mark.

All participants in the scheme are entered into a company quarterly draw which gives four winners each a cheque from Arriva London for £250 for their chosen charity.

All givers are also entered into a ballot which gives them the chance to be one of forty participants in Arriva London’s 2016 Lord Mayor’s Show entry on November 12th.

The beauty of the scheme is that the staff can choose exactly who they give to, and how much they give, and with such a diverse workforce it means that over 120 charities benefit, from well-known national or international ones to very local causes.

As Elise a driver from Enfield says:-

“I think Payroll Giving is a wonderful idea; if I can help vulnerable children, it’s the best thing I can do. My money goes to Sierra Leone, for children under five, and the great thing about Payroll Giving is I can make that choice”.
