Dundee Start-up Driving Forward With Business Charity Campaign

< Back to Press

Cash for Kids Charity

The newly launched Dundee-based business, GoRoadie, has committed to handing over all revenues generated in January to a local charity and is calling for other local companies to follow suit.

During its inaugural 12 months, the company has experienced significant growth, welcoming over 4000 locals to its web-based offering.

The company has now helped over 250 learner drivers in Dundee get started and has set out their ambition to give something back in 2018.

Co-Founder Michael Carr said “We've had so much support from Dundee over our first 12 months and we wanted to start the next 12 by donating all of our January revenue to local charities (Cash for Kids).

“We know that this is a gesture, but hope that we can continue to give back over the coming years. We know it will ultimately help young people in the city and would call upon other business with a social conscious to join us.”

During January GoRoadie are expecting a significant upturn in bookings, as new students will aim to start the year by hitting the road on the journey to achieving their driving qualification.

Barry White, the other half of GoRoadie’s top team added, “We wanted to build GoRoadie differently to other businesses, we are putting a lot of emphasis on community and corporate social responsibility.

“Our business provides a service and charges a fee for that, we don't see any reason why that shouldn't benefit the community that has given us everything to create our successful business.”

GoRoadie aims to have over 50 students learning through them in January.
