Fruitful first year for RHA-Transaid link-up

[ June 3, 2016   //   ]

The Road Haulage Association (RHA) has marked its first anniversary as a corporate member of Transaid by presenting the charity with a cheque for £5,354 at the Association’s annual members’ lunch.

The donation, which was presented by Richard Burnett, the RHA’s CEO, was raised as a result of the company’s new scheme that encourages its members to contribute to Transaid at the start or renewal of their memberships.

The RHA is also taking a more active role in its support of Transaid. Richard  Burnett has signed up to the Cycle South Africa challenge in 2017.

And in August, the RHA’s technical director Steve Biddle and training manager Bob Auchterlonie will swap their offices for Transaid’s new road safety programme in Malawi. During their two-week secondment, the pair will deliver UK-standard vehicle inspection training to the project’s students.
