Pirelli UK praised by the Payroll Giving Agency

22nd March 2013

A payroll giving agency has been so impressed by the services provided by Pirelli UK that it has upgraded the tyre manufacturer to gold status.

The British branch of the well-known Italian company has been awarded the feat having met the requirements set out for the Payroll Giving Quality Mark Award.

This organisation stipulates that more than ten per cent of a company’s employees have to make charitable donations through the payroll system in order for the firm in question to gain gold status.

Upon monitoring the activities at Pirelli UK in this department, the Payroll Giving Agency found that the three main beneficiaries of the employee donations are Barnardos, St Giles Hospice and Eden Valley Hospice.

On top of this, a number of smaller charities also benefit from the generosity of the tyre manufacturer’s members of staff.

Dominic Sandivasci, the managing director at Pirelli UK, commented: “In just over six months, Pirelli has successfully moved from bronze to gold status and we have to be very proud of this achievement in such a short space of time.

“The gold status is testament to the spirit of giving that exists amongst Pirelli staff.”

ATS Euromaster has Pirelli tyres in stock right now in various shapes and sizes.
