Throughout November, InXpress franchisees donated a penny for every shipment their customers sent. Some franchisees even donated more than a penny! Between them they managed to raise almost £2,000 for EYESeeME, InXpress’ chosen charity for this year. As part of the InXpress Gives Back programme, franchisees are strongly encouraged to give back to their local communities and causes and, as you can see from the money raised, they are more than happy to help a good cause and a fellow franchisee.
EYESeeMe is a charity set up and run by one of their franchisees, Rebecca Robyns from InXpress Hull. By joining together, InXpress and EyeSeeMe aim to raise the funding needed to get 50 children in Thailand into full time education and to fund them in their schooling until graduation. And the penny per shipment campaign has certainly helped them on the way!
InXpress are always keen to back any charity or community involvement (local or global!) and will always support franchisees in their efforts.
Melanie Spencer, Global Head of Marketing at InXpress, explains:
"This year’s penny per shipment campaign has been a great success. To raise over £2,000 is a great achievement and will mean so much to EYESeeMe as well as making a huge difference to so many children’s lives. Our franchisees have been more keen than ever to rally round and support Rebecca and it has just confirmed to us how close our network really is. They’re all willing to get stuck in and support each other whether it’s in business or in other interests."
By supporting charities such as EYESeeMe, InXpress gives franchisees the chance to get involved and help to raise money. In addition to the penny per shipment campaign, franchisees are also getting involved in other ways too. Craig Atkins, Franchise Owner of InXpress Reading, will be running the Manchester Marathon in April to raise money. EYESeeMe being a fellow franchisee’s charity seems to have spurred them all on even more to get raising and donating!

The overriding reason that customers are turning to InXpress for their shipping requirements is all about the overall service that is provided.
InXpress gives you a business concept and plan that you can run with. All you need is the right work ethic to deliver and make the business successful. There’s a model in place so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel – that was the biggest attraction for me.Lendy Mazur, Salisbury franchisee since February 2013
I’ve known about franchising for quite a while and I’m reassured by the fact that 95% of franchisees are still in business after 5 years. New businesses often fail before the initial five years.Bill Carter, Liverpool franchisee since 2008
I chose to franchise with InXpress because it’s like someone’s got their arm around you. I also liked the fact that you didn’t need a lot to run the business. You can run it from home, an office or anywhere in the world as long as you’ve got an internet connection.Kully Sahota, Peterborough franchisee since October 2012
