The Trolley Dash (the money raising drive) initiative serves as a platform for British Airways employees to engage with local communities. This initiative helps to raise money for Flying Start and Sport Relief raising funds through sport. Every year, Cabin Crew in London dash with an aircraft trolley through the streets of London, going over London’s iconic bridges, creating smiles and raising funds while doing so. This year, for the very first time, the Trolley Dash was conducted in India. By engaging with the communities directly, the airline aims to foster a culture of empowerment and upliftment, aligning with its core values of giving back to the society. Additionally, British Airways is also a supporter of the Hamara Foundation, which works to improve the lives of impoverished children in Mumbai by giving them life skills and vocational training.
