ARVAL Dress-Down-Friday
Monday, 15 June 2009 00:00

ARVAL - the UK's leading Contract Hire & Fuel Card provider - are based in Swindon at the Windmill Hill Business Park. Each month ARVAL allows a nominated charity to collect money at their Dress-Down Friday. Employees who choose to dress down are asked to donate £1 to the nominated charity. Thanks to the efforts of ARVAL employee Terry Dixon WBCT was accepted by the ARVAL Cares Committee as the charity of the month for May and we duly held a collection on May 29th. Thanks to subtle bucket shaking by Terry and WBCT member Colin Arch the Trust was able to raise the very healthy sum of £436.

Throughout our time at ARVAL we received much positive feedback from employees and the whole day was a great success. Thanks go to Terry Dixon and the ARVAL Cares Committee for giving us this opportunity.
