Our community involvement
As a fleet manager and driver risk management company, we believe we can play a key role in keeping local communities safe and improving our environment. It's an obligation we're more than happy to act on.
As a corporate sponsor of Brake, the road safety charity, we've taken part in Road Safety Week since 2007, visiting local schools to help children learn about dangers on the road. We also host Beep! Beep! Days to help primary school children learn about road safety.
Our corporate charity is Building Better Futures, which supports The Prince's Trust, Action for Children, Coram, Kris Kids, Project HOME and RedR. We get involved in all sorts of projects aimed at improving the aspirations and quality of life of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. At Yew Trees in Chesterfield, a temporary home for 16 to 21 year olds with learning or physical disabilities, we have been improving the gardens to provide a sanctuary to help residents deal with their difficulties. Seeing their smiling faces has been a reward in itself.
We also recognise that wherever we take from the world's resources, we need to put something back. So the team who produce our product catalogue have planted 50 new trees in the National Forest to make up for all the paper we've used and to make sure future generations can continue to enjoy this glorious national asset.
