Railway Family Week 2023
April 24 - April 30
Railway Family Week is back for 2023
Charity the Railway Benefit Fund (RBF) have today announced the return of their popular ‘Railway Family Week’ event, which will be held between 24 – 30 April this year.
Railway Family Week is a fundraising and awareness campaign organised and hosted by RBF; a charity that supports current, former, and retired railway people and their families. Founded in 2021, the week has a simple aim; to bring together the entire industry and raise £50,000 for RBF.
The last 12 months have been particularly difficult for the rail industry, and RBF have had their services called on like never before. In 2022, the charity supported over 1,000 railway people and their families with financial grants, debt advice and legal help. In addition, RBF launched a new Energy Fund to support with the cost-of-living crisis and increase in energy bills. This was all made possible thanks to RBF’s generous supporters who exceeded the £50,000 target set during last year’s Railway Family Week.
RBF President, Pete Waterman OBE, said: “We’re delighted that Railway Family Week is in its third year now and we’re ready to make it the biggest yet. The £50,000 target we set is vital for the charity; it could fund a fifth of all of our services throughout the year. Please show your support and come together with RBF this April to support the railway family.”
The charity will soon be providing more detail on the variety of ways that companies and individuals can get involved with fundraising activities and donations for their Auction of Experiences. For those who would like to find out more or pledge their support for Railway Family Week, visit:
