Rail Aid

Porterbrook secured over £56,000 for Rail Aid 2020 in support of Railway Children

Industry charity, Railway Children has been hard hit by Covid-19, with the cancellation of key annual fundraisers. In response, the industry has come together under the banner of Rail Aid to try and address some of this shortfall and keep the charity in the public eye.

Rail Aid, of which Mary Grant is an ambassador, is a programme of fundraising that culminated in a week of charitable events at the end of November. Porterbrook donated 25 locomotive nameplates to the Rail Aid auction and secured £51,000 for the charity. Internal fundraising activities allowed Team Porterbrook to raise over £5,000 to add to the Rail Aid total.
