PwC, a global professional services business delivering assurance (audit), advisory and tax services, puts on a unique charitable theatrical production that aims to bring joy to children everywhere, in particular to children from inner-city schools and charities.

The Pantomime is an important part of the PwC in the Community programme in the UK. The aim is to bring joy to thousands of children, particularly to those from inner-city schools and charities, by giving them the chance to see a theatrical production at a professional theatre, and with aspirations to spark in them a life-long love of the performing arts. Tickets, goodie bags and transport are all provided to the groups attending. Moving thousands of children needs a reliable, friendly transport partner.

This year, due to COVID PwC were left without a transport supplier for a large number of groups at short notice. Enter Kura, who came to the rescue – from the first call PwC had with Michael Ashwell and the team at Kura, they were greatly reassured by his polite and friendly manner. Michael took the brief and responded within an hour confirming Kura could provide the additional transport required at short notice.

In the week leading up to the event Michael kept in regular contact with the PwC team, using a detailed spreadsheet to update them on pick-up times, driver names and contact numbers, which was a great help every evening. Plus, the morning after every performance, Michael rang PwC to check everything had gone smoothly and record any learnings – much appreciated by the team.

Kura’s contact at PwC was very impressed with Kura and the service provided by Michael and the team “Kura helped us out at such short notice, helping us to transport thousands of children who wouldn’t otherwise have had a chance to visit the Pantomime. Everyone at Kura was so helpful and friendly and we hope that we can build on the relationship in the future.”

Kura’s vision is safer, greener, smarter travel for schools and businesses. By combining proprietary, leading-edge technology with the best, local vehicle operators in the UK, Kura enables organisations to maximise the safety, wellbeing, and productivity of their students, customers and staff. Kura is dedicated to driving transport efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions.
