At Trolex, a huge part of our culture is that we want to be a source for good in the world. To do this, we've identified local charities that reflect this mission and with the kind support of our colleagues, we are able to donate our time to assist with these incredible causes.
That's why Trolex are actively supporting the local charity Transport For Sick Children.
Transport For Sick Children is a unique volunteer driver scheme, to help children with a health need living in Greater Manchester, gain access to essential health care, which they would otherwise struggle to get to without a means of transport.
By using their own cars, volunteers help by collecting a child with their carer from home and driving them to their appointments at various medical locations. When the appointment or treatment is finished, the volunteer then takes the child and their carer back home. It’s as simple as that.
Last month, TFSC volunteer drivers undertook 419 trips, covering 9,405 miles. This helped 210 children to attend much needed medical appointments.
A group of employees at Trolex have offered their time to volunteer for the charity and are now all registered volunteer drivers. Our participation officially starts on the 15th April 2019, and we be taking our first child and carer to their appointment.
