TBF passes 50k mark

Industry charity, the Transport Benevolent Fund (TBF) – which helps workers and their families with grants to cope with illness and other emergencies, has just recruited its 50,000th member.

Development Director Ian Barlex says he is “delighted” with the news, and recent signings have included independent operators Jumbocruiser, Stephens’s sons of Essex and Anthony’s Travel.

“Independent operators can’t always compete with larger firms when it comes to recruitment, but with the TBF, for only £1 a week, they can offer a tangible employment benefit. Better still, we can set up everything for them.”
