Charities on our vans
When we introduced our new branding on our vans it brought about the opportunity to give back to our communities and promote organisations that are important to our employees on the back of our technicians' vans.
We asked our staff who they wished to support and we received both local and national charities. The initiative is ongoing and we are regularly adding new charities to the programme. All of our liveries are produced by our partner and transport branding specialists, Ast Transport Branding.
