Official charity

UKWA has named Transaid as its official charity.

Transaid was founded over 25 years ago by Save the Children and The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and its Patron is HRH The Princess Royal.  It is an international UK development charity that aims to reduce poverty and improve livelihoods across Africa and the developing world through creating better transport.

Roger Williams, UKWA’s chief executive officer, comments: Transaid is the logistics industry’s charity and, as such, is perfect for UKWA. It has done and continues to do an excellent job in building local skills and knowledge to make transport safer, cheaper, cleaner and more effective, ensuring better access to the essentials for everyday life such as healthcare, education and training, and economic opportunities across the African continent.

Each year at the Association’s annual lunch UKWA members and their guests raise several thousands of pounds and the money is donated to a different cause chosen by the Association’s Chairman.  From now on, the proceeds of the lunch collection will go to Transaid.

In addition, a number of other fund raising initiatives are planned and these will be announced in due course.
