Arriva London scooped three awards at the National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards held in November. The awards showcase and reward the best examples of UK employers’ commitment to Payroll Giving. This year, Arriva London entered three categories and were delighted to win the coveted Gold Award in two, and be Highly Commended in a third.

The two Golds came in the categories 'The Most Innovative Campaign - Large Employer' and 'The Most Successful Sustained Scheme – Large Employer'; the Highly Commended was awarded in the 'Best Promotional Partnership – Large Employer' category.

To collect the awards on behalf of the company were Nik Partou, our Communication Support Manager, and two of our Payroll Givers, driver Stephanie and driving instructor Neil.

Our campaign theme 'It's easy to give with Payroll Giving, your colleagues do it every day' has been promoted through weekly road shows at each of the company’s London garages, together with a poster and video campaign telling givers’ stories and responses from the charities that are the recipients.

All participants in the scheme enter a company quarterly draw which gives four winners each a cheque from Arriva London for £250 for their chosen charity, and all givers are also entered into a ballot giving them the chance to be one of the participants in Arriva London’s Lord Mayor’s Show entry.

In the last two years, we are also very proud to have been awarded the Charity Aids Foundation’s Platinum Award for having over twenty percent of our staff contributing to charities through Payroll Giving.

At this year’s awards, it was announced that in this, the 30th year of Payroll Giving, there will be a new 'Diamond' Award for companies who achieve thirty percent of their staff involved with giving in this manner. Our Commercial Director, Peter Batty, said:

"This will be our new goal moving forward. We are delighted to have won these awards and are continuing to develop the campaign. Achieving these top awards for Most Innovative Campaign and Most Successful Sustained Scheme is something we are very proud of, and provides a platform for us to encourage more of our staff to start giving through the Payroll Giving system, providing sustainable income for hundreds of charities in the future."
