Logistics Partners have supported Transaid since 2008 and in 2016 Lynn Parnell became an Ambassador for Transaid.
Transaid transforms lives through safe, available, and sustainable transport. As an international development organisation, that shares transport expertise with partners and governments, Transaid empowers people to build the skills they need to transform their own lives. Transaid works in two key areas: road safety and access to healthcare.

In lockdown Lynn realised she could see Kingfishers nesting from her home office window. This prompted Lynn to use the "proper camera" rather than her mobile phone to take photos of the nature in our garden and the Lode that runs beside our garden. We have now produced calendars and the first 30 people to donate £10 in December 2021 can email us at email@example.com to request a free calendar posted to them. We are hoping this will help us to surpass our £4,000 target.
