HOW CAN I DONATE?
Many of you have been asking how you can help charities during this unprecedented crisis, especially those charities helping to reduce the strain on our NHS. In these uncertain times UK charities need help now more than ever to be able to continue their essential services.
Our partners the British Red Cross continue to use our vehicles across the world and around the corner supporting the most vulnerable communities. They have now launched a UK crisis appeal which you can find here.
You can also now make a one-off donation through our Payroll Giving scheme to any UK registered charity, good cause or place of worship. Donations are tax-free so a donation of £5 a month will cost you no more than £4.
