Sponsorships and giving to the community
At Dyce Carriers we believe in Corporate Social Responsibility and support of local communities. Over the years we have lent our support to various events and causes, both in Aberdeenshire and across the UK, particularly in areas related to our business. This has included support and sponsorship arrangements for young athletes, community groups and charities, and a number of long term commitments.
Rotary Club Shoe Box Scheme
We participate in bi-annually in the Rotary Club Shoe Box Scheme. Shoeboxes containing donations of toys, toiletries, educational items, and other useful things are shipped to Eastern European families who find themselves in poverty. A small gift of happiness goes a long way.
Humanitarian Aid for Ukraine
Over the last year and a half, our team has been working with local charities and groups to transport humanitarian aid to the Polish border of Ukraine. Deliveries of food, clothes, bedding, and supplies are undertaken by our dedicated driver Piotr, who embarks on these week-long round trips every couple of months.
Local Food Banks
No one should go hungry at Christmas. We are committed to supporting vulnerable individuals and families in the local communities where each of our depots are based, which is why we make annual donations to four local food banks every year in December.
We regularly support Livability, a disability charity that connects people with their communities, and helps people living with disabilities to build resilience, confidence, self-esteem, skills, and stay motivated.
