Xpediator renews Transaid corporate membership

We are delighted to announce that Xpediator has renewed its corporate membership with Transaid for a further three years, having originally signed a three-year commitment in 2019.

Support for Transaid, an international development organisation, is a key part of our corporate social responsibility pledge.

Dave Gladen, Head of Marketing at Xpediator, says: “We are a business which lives and breathes transport every day, in everything we do. Once we’d been introduced to Transaid and had learned more about the projects they were involved with, coming on board as a corporate member was the natural next step.

“Knowing that our support for Transaid is directly helping to transform lives across Africa means a huge amount to us. It’s something we actively talk about with both our teams and our customers; we’re very proud to be supporting Transaid’s life-saving work.”

Gladen is leading the charge within Xpediator, having signed up as one of more than 40 riders from across the industry who will be tackling Transaid’s Cycle Malawi fundraising challenge this October.

He says: “I’ve taken part in charity runs in aid of Transaid, and some of my colleagues took part in the Way of the Roses cycle challenge last autumn, but this is the first time we have joined one of the international events. I’m excited – it should be an incredible adventure!”

Commentingon their renewal of support, Florence Bearman, Transaid’s Head of Fundraising, says: “The unrestricted funding we receive through corporate memberships is vital as it enables us to test and implement new projects. It’s precisely this type of funding which allowed us to launch our first road safety projects in Tanzania and Zambia nearly 15 years ago – setting us on the path to the five professional driver training projects we are running today. We are delighted Xpediator chose to renew its support.”
