Corporate Social Responsibility

At Ryder we pride ourselves on building stronger communities by supporting causes across the UK.

Investing in people and the community

Ryder's support and partnership with British Red Cross has raised tens of thousands of pounds for a variety of activities, including helping to fund an online first aid learning resource for children. More recently we have been raising funds to purchase a new emergency response vehicle for British Red Cross. We have currently raised more than £32,000 of our £38,000 goal. This has been achieved through a number of activities, including Ryder staff running the London Marathon, office dress down days, and online donation page and other activities.

A caring team

As well as supporting British Red Cross, our team regularly supports other good causes in our community:

  • Since June 2018 the team at our Birmingham Head Office have been supporting a local food bank, (the Kingfisher Foodbank) by running a monthly food drive. So far we have donated nearly half a tonne of food items to the bank, which supports needy families in the local area
  • In September 2018 Claire Thomson, Vehicle Delivery Administrator in the Vehicle Delivery Management team, braved the shave in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and shaved her head, raising £540
  • In October 2018 we held our annual Head Office coffee morning and bake-off for Macmillan Cancer Support, raising nearly £400. 

Thanks to our team's incredible drive and dedication, we empower our employees to select the causes we support as a business.
