RTS Group’s charity support gets motoring with Christmassy dress-up day

Automotive learning and development agency, RTS Group, has marked its new community support scheme with a festive dress up day.

The event, which included a raffle, raised more than £200 for the Life for Llewie appeal – a charity to help South Wales baby Llewis Pavis, who was born with a life-threatening condition.

Based near Chippenham, RTS Group provides learning and development to people working in automotive manufacturers’ retail networks. Over the past few weeks, staff have also been collecting food to be distributed by a local church to elderly and isolated people, and pet food for Bath Cats and Dogs Home.

“We have always supported good causes, but we wanted to do so in a more formal and structured way, so this year we set up a committee to organise events,” said Emma Tozer, HR adviser. “This was our first, and people really got into the spirit by dressing up. Local businesses were really generous with raffle prizes too.”

Emma said RTS Group staff will vote for the charities they want to support, which are likely to include one local to Wiltshire and a national one.

She said: “We have people working all over the country for RTS Group, so selecting a national charity – perhaps something related to automotive – will be more inclusive.”
