Our charity aims to make a difference to communities around the UK. We focus our attention on the local communities around Moto’s locations, however we also partner each year with a national charity in order to help make a difference to a wider community audience.
The Moto in the Community Trust was launched in 2005 as a grant-making charity supporting various local groups and national charities by raising money at Moto locations nationwide. Funds raised by our charity are then distributed back into our communities through grants. Moto people also offer their time and skills by volunteering within their communities and building strong links with local charities and community groups.
Moto employs around 5,000 staff at service areas nationwide, and it is the energy and enthusiasm of our staff that has helped raise over £6m since our charity launched in 2005.
Our Charity of the Year partner enjoys nationwide presence at Moto’s locations and a proportion of the funds raised at Moto Service Areas and by our corporate supporters each year.
Each Moto location is also given the opportunity to adopt a local community partner, specific to their geographical area. These partnerships build strong community links and provide excellent opportunities for our charity to make a real difference to our communities. Local community partners are eligible to apply for grants to our charity.
The Trust also has its own benevolent fund to support Moto People through times of hardship.
The Trust is managed by 15 Trustees which includes members of the Moto senior management team and external Trustees from other industries.
