Have you heard? Or, we should say, have you seen?
Our drivers wanted to do something special and a bit different to help raise money for our new Charity of the Year, the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance. They came up with stripping off and taking part in their own really good, yet really naughty, 2015 calendar.
Sacrificing their uniforms for a daring photo shoot, drivers and office staff used oversized MANGO smart cards, tyres, folders, and bus parts to preserve their modesty.
Our very own Steve, Aana and Zippy promote the calendar
Around 300 trentbarton staff voted for the life-saving service from 10 charities put forward as potential beneficiaries of the firm’s fundraising efforts. Their adopted charity for 2014, Help for Heroes, is set to receive around £8,000 from their efforts this the year.
In total, 30 of our team volunteered for the calendar shoot, with images depicting them in a variety of work settings, such as driving, washing vehicles and adding fuel.
We caught up with Alex Hornby, our Marketing & Communications Director, who explained:
“This is yet another example of an excellent fundraising effort, driven by trentbarton staff who were always prepared to show their charitable, as well as cheeky, side!
“The idea for the calendar came from them, and it says a lot for their sense of community that so many volunteered to take part.”
