We’ve embarked on an exciting relationship with Shop'N Drive, a leading player and innovator in the UK petrol forecourt industry.
Shop’ N Drive partnership raises over £250,000 for RNIB!
In October 2014, RNIB embarked upon an exciting one year partnership with Shop’ N Drive, a leading player and innovator in the UK petrol forecourt industry. Shop’ N Drive, owned by Rontec, have a UK wide network of 160 Shop' N Drive stores and by implementing ‘Pennies’, offered their customers an opportunity to 'round it up' by adding an extra 25p to their card transactions.
Within the year, Shop’ N drive customers raised over £250,000 for blind and partially sighted people and will make a real and lasting difference to thousands of people affected by sight loss across the country. Our partnership success was not only due to the generous customers, but also to all the wonderful staff for their enthusiasm and energy shown in promoting the partnership.
Giles Taylor, Operations Director at Rontec, explains why they set up the scheme, which is a first for the industry:
We are proud to have been the first UK forecourt retailer to give customers the chance to make a small – but collectively significant – donation to charity. The scheme has proven that a little really does go a long way to raising large sums of money for a very worthy cause.

RNIB would like to thank Shop' N Drive for choosing RNIB as it’s first charity of the year partner and to thank it's staff and generous customers for making our partnership such an amazing success!
