The Malcolm Group pledges support to transport charity Transaid

The Malcolm Group, one of the UK’s leading providers of logistics, construction and vehicle maintenance services, has become the newest supporter of international development charity Transaid after joining its corporate membership programme.

The Malcolm Group has signed up as a partner of Transaid for an initial three year period and joins some of the industry’s biggest names as supporters of the charity.

The partnership was officially announced at Multimodal 2014, where Transaid’s patron, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, visited The Malcom Group’s stand and welcomed the company to the charity. The Princess Royal also launched the company’s innovative new 50ft container engineered i n parallel with a versatile new trailer which is easily extended to accommodate the latest super-sized containers.

The Malcolm Group’s support will include an annual financial contribution, which will allow Transaid to test and implement new transport solutions in developing countries. The company will also support Transaid in its fundraising initiatives, with staff taking part in the charity’s bespoke cycle challenges, and offering its expertise in a number of overseas projects.

Andrew Malcolm, The Malcolm Group’s Chief Executive, says: “We are delighted to be supporting Transaid. The charity does a fantastic job of improving the lives of so many people and we are looking forward to helping that work continue in whatever way we can.
“Our company slogan is ‘practical solutions, successful partnerships’ and by working with Transaid we very much hope to put this into practice to help the charity achieve its goals.”

Gary Forster, Transaid’s Chief Executive, adds: “Our corporate members are absolutely critical to the success of Transaid’s projects in the developing world.

“We are incredibly grateful that The Malcolm Group has chosen to support Transaid. Their input, not only with monetary donations, but through the valuable experience from the company’s staff will be hugely beneficial to Transaid when planning and implementing new projects overseas.”
