Commited to the local community
The Roadrunners Group is and always has been committed to its local community. The chosen charity of The Roadrunners Group is ‘St. Catherine’s Hospice’ located in Crawley, West Sussex. St. Catherine’s Hospice solely relies upon donations from the community to provide end of life care regardless. Coupled with this St. Catherine’s Hospice provides support to local people, families, friends and carers completely FREE OF CHARGE throughout Crawley, Horsham, Mid Sussex and East Surrey.
In recent years the Management Team, staff and drivers at The Roadrunners Group have been touched by the services provided by St. Catherine’s. It is without doubt a service provided to the community which is outstanding and delivered with CARE COMPASSION AND UNDERSTANDING.
On the 30th June 2013 The Roadrunners Group organized a 6-a-side Cricket Tournament to raise much needed funds for St. Catherine’s. The tournament was well received by all in the community, including many local and nationally known businesses. It was also attended by some of the GREATEST INTERNATIONAL cricket players from Pakistan, Sri-Lanka and Bangladesh.
The event was without doubt a major success and raised some much needed funds to ensure St. Catherine’s continues to provide the service they provide.
The past two years have been challenging for the whole community and Roadrunners have played their part. Prices were reduced during the initial Covid 19 lockdown to ensure that local people could get to vital hospital appointments and places of work in safety.
Although government guidance has now changed, it is still company policy that drivers should wear masks for their own and passengers safety, as the pandemic is not over yet.
The Roadrunners Group are the forerunners in the Taxi and Private Hire industry in providing apprenticeship programmes in Customer Service excellence. Through our commitment to the community The Roadrunners Group are continuing to identify candidates for the scheme. Our HR Director Denis Bone said, 'Our industry sector is not one renowned for adding its value of its human resources. Apprenticeships offer a way forward with easily demonstratable cost and motivation benefits'.
The Roadrunners Group can possibly lead the whole sector into a new recognition of the impact of skilled staff on the bottom line.
