Thank You: Transaid Exceeds its Christmas Appeal Target

Everyone at Transaid would like to express their gratitude to the 46 companies that supported our Christmas appeal, raising an incredible £26,442 to smash our £25,000 target.

Our supporters could choose from three packages available – gold, silver and bronze – with contributors receiving either a personalised Transaid e-card, its company logo featured in a double page Christmas advertisement – as published on a pro bono basis in Coach & Bus Week, Forwarder, Motor Transport and SHD Logistics magazines – or both, depending on the chosen package.

Our Head of Fundraising, Florence Bearman, says: “When it comes to the Christmas appeal, we are always so grateful for the support that we receive. The donations have set 2018 off on a fantastic note.”

The money raised from the Christmas appeal will support our life-saving work to create and promote driver training initiatives which improve driving standards, ensure safer vehicles and reduce the number of deaths on the road, which is the third biggest killer in sub-Saharan Africa following HIV/AIDS and malaria (Source: The World Bank).
