On the first day of the 2023 Commercial Vehicle Show on 18 April, RHA National Chairperson Moreton Cullimore presented a cheque for over £16,000 to Transaid Acting Chief Executive Florence Bearman. The money was raised by RHA members who, when renewing their annual subscription, took the option of donating to the charity.
Moreton said: “Transaid does a cracking job supporting the transport infrastructure that is so essential for some of the world’s poorest countries.
“Our industry will always struggle financially – the price of fuel, legislation and regulations all cost. That’s what makes the donations from our members so remarkable, and I’d like to thank each and every one of them for their generosity.”
Responding, Transaid’s Florence Bearman added: “Transaid has enjoyed an excellent relationship with the RHA and its members for many years and donations such as this make our work possible.”
