Funds break through £100k mark for NHS ‘Donate a ride campaign’

A fantastic public response to Addison Lee’s Donate a Ride’ has seen funds break through the £100k mark in just over 12 hours.

The British public has already matched Addison Lee’s contribution of £50,000 in a little over 12 hours

Launched yesterday evening (31 March), the campaign sees Addison Lee partner with its corporate clients to offer free rides to and from hospital for NHS workers across the city, helping to ensure those on the frontline can get to and from work safely.

Addison Lee has made the first donation, contributing £50,000 to the fund, but the British public has already matched Addison Lee’s contribution of £50,000 in a little over 12 hours – and donations are continuing to rise.

For members of the public who still want to contribute, Addison Lee has established a GoFundMe page, which can be found at: https://www.gofundme.com/f/donate-a-ride-for-the-nhs

The free rides will be made available to NHS trusts within the M25. Over the coming days, Addison Lee will work with those trusts to distribute the donations and allow their workers to access the initial free rides. As more partners join the scheme, more free rides will be offered.

Businesses who want to donate via the Donate A Ride initiative should contact [email protected]
