Reading Buses has won the Business in Action (over 50 employees), at the Pride of Reading Awards.
The judges recognised the local operator’s efforts to raise money and support local charities, its commitment to the environment as well as for helping people to get around Reading.
In giving the operator the award, the judges have also recognised its constant focus on innovation and technology.
Martijn Gilbert, Chief Executive Officer of Reading Buses, says: “We are committed to helping Reading, and our employees have chosen a charity of the year for the past 10 years, during which time we have raised £62,000 for eight charities.
“Working with these charities we have helped to raise not only money, but also awareness, including our latest charity Red Balloon which supports the recovery of severely bullied children.
“We care about Reading and it is really important that we give back to the communities we serve.”
