CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF FLEET EXCELLENCE
2022 marks an exciting milestone for Fleet Operations as we celebrate our 20th anniversary.
Like any service provider, we are, of course, nothing without our people and it is the team’s endless enthusiasm, deep commitment and market-leading knowledge that has formed the bedrock of our success.
It’s time to give back
We are passionate about helping our clients run greener, cleaner and more efficient fleets, but we also know that running a successful business isn’t just about the profit and loss statement.
It’s also about looking after your team, the wider community and the planet. That’s why we’ve set ourselves a challenging fundraising target of at least £20k by the year end with all funds divided amongst 20 local and national charities, each chosen by our employees, some for very personal reasons.
A head for good business. A heart for good causes.
Our 20th anniversary ‘Happy and Healthy’ Charity Challenges!
Walk around the world: As a team, we’ll be completing 49,802,000 steps over the next few months by either walking, running or cycling - the equivalent of walking around the world! Progress will be measured by fitness apps as we go and entered into a central database once a week.
Snowdon fancy dress climb: In September, a team will be climbing the highest mountain in Wales, Snowdon, in fancy dress.
Charity football match: November will see two employee teams facing off to win the Fleet Operations Trophy.
Land's End to John O’Groats in 24 hours: Using three static bikes at Fleet House, we will complete the Lands End to John O’Groats cross country trek in 24 hours! Everyone will take part in the 874-mile challenge, even if it’s just for a few minutes, and we will be cycling right through the night to hit the target.
Our employees have chosen these 20 charities, close to their hearts, to receive a share of £20,000 so that they continue with their invaluable work and support for those who need it most.
