Over £3,000 raised at IRSE Dinner Glasgow for Railway Children
23rd November 2016
Guests at a members dinner for the IRSE Scottish section raised an astounding £3,327 for children’s charity Railway Children this November after a personal plea from Andy Ridout, Group Managing Director of rail recruitment consultancy Advance-TRS.
This was an incredible increase on last year’s total of £2,174 raised for the children’s charity. This latest collection adds to a running total of over £35,000 raised by the team at Advance-TRS by kind donations from rail professionals across the sector over the past 5 years.
“It’s inspiring to see so many from the rail industry come together to change the lives of thousands of disadvantaged people every year” commented Ridout.
“There’s not enough I could say to thank the members of the IRSE Scottish section for their substantial donations at the recent dinner in Glasgow. Their donations will go towards helping the most vulnerable children worldwide.”
Railway Children is an international children’s charity, with outreach teams operating out of the UK, India and East Africa. Donations help to fund street teams that seek out children living in squalid conditions on the streets, where the charity’s team of experts can meet the child’s immediate needs and attempt to reintegrate them back into normality.
“Together, we can all advance.”
