Solihull ride app hailing service spread some Christmas cheer

Solihull Editorial 22nd Dec, 2020   0

A SOLIHULL business is spreading some much-needed Christmas cheer for those in need after donating £500 worth of toys and goodies to the charities, Birmingham City Mission and Birmingham Irish.

UVA UK is set to launch its new app-based ride hailing service in Birmingham in early 2021 and has committed to lending a helping hand to local charities and community groups across the areas it operates.

As part of these plans, the company has pledged to donate three per cent of its overall profits to UK charities.

Both charities received packages stuffed with Christmas presents, including toys, chocolates and clothes.




Each set will also include an age-appropriate book to support the newly launched Marcus Rashford Book Club, which aims to give children from disadvantaged backgrounds the chance to embrace reading from a young age.

Alongside the toy donation, UVA UK has also donated £180 worth of food to Smethwick Foodbank to support BBC WM’s Adrian Goldberg’s pledge to donate for every West Bromwich Albion goal.
