Addison Lee launches 'Donate a ride' campaign for NHS workers by donating £50,000 to the fund



Private hire car firm Addison Lee has launched its ‘Donate a Ride’ campaign, which will see the London based operator partner with its corporate clients to offer free rides to and from hospital for NHS workers across the city. 


Addison Lee, who according to the firm has 80% of the FTSE100 as customers, has made the first donation, contributing £50,000 to the fund.

A spokesperson for the company said: "The initiative is part of Addison Lee’s commitment to support the nation’s capital in the fight against coronavirus by ensuring those on the frontline can get to and from work safely, comfortably and efficiently."

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.


Liam Griffin, CEO of Addison Lee, said: “At this crucial stage in the fight against coronavirus, it has never been more important to support our NHS heroes. With ‘Donate a Ride’, in partnership with our corporate customers, we’ll make getting to and from work as easy and safe as possible for those on the frontline.


"In addition to ‘Donate a Ride’, we’re working with our Driver Partners to help the government, NHS and retailers keep the things that matter in London moving – just as we have done for the last 45 years.”
