Moto passes the £1m milestone supporting Heroes on road to recovery
Our partnership with Moto started in 2012 and and staff at Moto have shown tremendous dedication and support over the years. 2015 was the most successful year so far raising £400k and bringing their grand total to over £1m!
Each year Moto organises two national collections weekends for H4H during the Easter and Summer bank holiday weekends, a special collection for Armed Forces Day as well as a range of staff fundraising events at their 45 sites across the UK.
Moto National Collection Campaigns
Moto kindly hosts annual National Collection Campaigns across all their sites when staff and H4H Volunteers join together to bucket collect for the Charity. The dates this year are:
- Easter National Collection (25 March - 28 March 2016)
- Armed Forces Day (25 June) - special collection for H4H
- Summer National Collection (26 - 29 August 2016)
Hero Ride: The Moto Challenge, 27 - 30 May 2016
Moto staff across the UK cycled an amazing 10,849 kilometres on their ‘Hero Ride: The Moto Challenge’ – all without moving from the spot! The 24-hour static bike challenge raised an amazing £37,213 (2015: £22k) - thanks to the generosity of Moto customers.
In addition, H4H benefits from Moto charity collection tins, located at till points in Moto sites.(Moto shares a minimum of 20% of donations with H4H as their Official Charity Partner, as well as giving funds to many community projects around the country.)
Chairman of The Moto in the Community Trust, Brian Larkin: “We are very proud of all the Moto staff around the UK who take time out of their busy day to support our fundraising activities and have helped us reach this amazing milestone. Supporting our wounded Heroes is something our customers feel passionate about. Our partnership with Help for Heroes has also had a positive effect on our fundraising for local charities and good causes as well.”
Moto in the Community is the charitable arm of Moto Hospitality Ltd, the UK's leading operator of motorway service areas. Since the trust was launched in 2005, Moto in the Community has raised over £3.5 million for charities and good causes.
