Thrifty Car & Van Rental has renewed its partnership with the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation for a fifth consecutive year, pledging to continue supporting its fundraising efforts throughout 2023.
Since Thrifty became an official partner to the Foundation in 2018, it has continued to donate through a variety of activities, plus regular Corporate donations. These include holding standalone fundraising events organised by Thrifty employees, as well as taking part in national and regional campaigns such as the Doddie Cup and Doddie Aid.
Thrifty also contributes to a number of charitable causes, including the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, and regularly provides vehicles to support the Foundation’s fundraising activities.
Jill Douglas, CEO of the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, said: “We are incredibly grateful for Thrifty’s ongoing support. They are loyal friends of the Foundation and have been with us from the beginning. This strong partnership highlights their belief in our vision: A World Free of MND.
“The backing of companies like Thrifty, and the money they are able to raise in conjunction with their team and their customers, allows us to make a real difference to the lives of many MND sufferers.”
Martin Wilson, Managing Director of Thrifty Car & Van Rental UK, said: “Since our dear friend Doddie Weir was diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease in 2017, this has been a cause very close to the hearts of all of us at Thrifty. We are extremely proud to be able to help the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation continue the great man’s legacy and make life better for people battling this terrible disease.”
Thrifty is one of the UK’s leading vehicle rental companies, with nearly 90 branches located across the UK. It offers a variety of mobility options to meet a wide range of needs. These include short-term and corporate vehicle rental, as well as its FlexiFleet car subscription scheme, which allows customers to commit to a vehicle for as little as one month.
