Since we opened in 2003, M6toll’s Drive for Charity initiative has given away more than £1 million to good causes.


The M6toll’s Drive for Charity initiative has donated more than £1 million since 2003. Its mission is to make a difference to the lives of people in our local communities.

Every year we’ve worked with a key Charity Partner as well as a number of smaller organisations through volunteering, free use of the road or our monthly community fund.

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity (MAAC)


2022/2023 – Sky Champs

Our funding this year supported the Sky Champs project, part of which delivers CPR and bleed control training to schools across the six counties that MAAC covers. The partnership has provided hundreds of people with the skills and confidence to save a life in an emergency.

ABHQ Wellbeing Garden

We have also helped to fund a new wellbeing garden at the new airbase headquarters near Cosford. The garden will be a key feature at the new complex, providing a tranquil area for staff and visitors – whether they have returned from a lifesaving mission or a day of fundraising.

Drive for Charity Community Fund

We’ve donated up to £1000 every month to local projects, with a focus on those causes that might otherwise struggle for support. And over the years we have helped charities, schools, sports clubs and voluntary organisations to really make a difference to their communities.

To mark our 20th Anniversary, we’re working on an exciting relaunch of Drive for Charity in 2024. If you’d like to be kept updated, drop us a line at


Drive for Charity on the Road

If you’re based in Staffordshire and your school, college or sixth form academy owns and maintains its minibus, you can apply for free use of the M6toll. We’re currently supporting 25 local schools and colleges in the region, and all we ask in return is for the display of an M6toll promotional decal!

Qualifying schools will be asked to complete a short application together with an estimation of annual usage of the M6toll.
