Network Rail owns and operates Britain’s rail infrastructure and is working to transform rail travel across the British Isles – they are also The Big Egg Hunt’s location sponsors.
Action for Children are Network Rail’s Charity of Choice 2012-2014 as voted for by their staff and the support for this event is part of their ongoing investment in local communities and charities across Britain.
Historically Network Rail has supported several great charitable causes from Cancer Research UK to the current Charity of Choice, Action for Children.
Besides the Charity of Choice, Network Rail also encourages charity collections at its 17 managed stations and supports local charities through the 10 routes spanning across the UK.
Employees are also supported in their volunteering and fundraising efforts. You can find out more about Network Rail’s initiatives in their Sustainability Update.
Action for Children began their journey over 140 years ago when their founder discovered abandoned children living under a railway bridge at Waterloo. So it’s fitting that they are Network Rail’s Charity of Choice. Network Rail is proud to be helping them make a difference by ensuring thousands of vulnerable and neglected children have better journeys to brighter futures.
