We are proud to be giving back, and serving our communities!

West Midlands Metro is part of the MML, and we are committed to delivering a safe, secure, reliable, and sustainable tram network in the midlands. 

We realise that it’s not all about ‘what’ we’re doing, it’s the ‘why’ too. We want to develop and grow our services to offer the midlands a better way of living and commuting, we want to offer connections. We want to reach out and really make the midlands a better place to live, work and travel, and help our residents to thrive.

We decided to give back and contribute to charitable causes! 

We wanted to make a lasting difference, so we decided to begin ongoing support by bringing attention to, and raising funds for, as many invaluable causes as possible, and to do this successfully, we chose to organise a series of exciting fundraising events for a different charity each year! 

As it’s all about uniting people, places and further opportunities, we wanted to get our colleagues involved too, by giving them the responsibility of choosing the yearly charity. 

2022 saw the official start to the process, with Compton Care!

This year the charity selected is Macmillan Cancer Support!

Macmillan Cancer Support

This year, a leading cancer charity, ‘Macmillan Cancer Support’, attracted the most votes from colleagues. 

Macmillan Cancer Support provides physical, financial and emotional support to people affected by cancer through its expert nurses, information and support services, an online community, welfare advice and financial grants.

In Birmingham and the Black Country alone, around 11,260 people are, on average, diagnosed with cancer each year, and Macmillan aims to do whatever it takes to help people affected by cancer.

Last year we raised an amazing total of just over £1,000 for our ‘Charity of the Year’, and this year we’ll be aiming to at least match that impressive sum through raffles, coffee mornings and a host of other fundraising events.
