Our Christmas Appeal

This Christmas, we are aiming to raise £40,000 for our Children's Fund, which will allow us to support 130 UK rail families and children in need. As a charity, we rely on the generosity of our supporters and the donations they raise- all of which go straight to funding the welfare and crisis needs of people working in rail. By donating, you will make a real difference to railway families this Christmas and help to make this wish come true.


Donate to our JustGiving page

An easy way to support us this year is by purchasing items from our Christmas Shop. We have a selection of rail themed items available this year including cards, stocking fillers and the 2022 Calendar ‘Names & Trains.’ All monies raised from the RBF Christmas Shop will go towards supporting railway people who are in need this Christmas.

2022 Calendar- Names & Trains

The RBF Calendar, kindly sponsored by TES 2000, is back for 2022 and this year features stunning images of named trains, provided by staff at Avanti, Northern, Caledonian Sleeper, Southeastern and more. Trains featured in this year’s calendar include Tornado, Flying Scotsman and the RBF’s own named pendolino. The calendar is A4 landscape size and costs £7.50.

Christmas Cards

We have two new card designs for sale this year. The first is a bespoke card for RBF, taken by the late photographer Peter Skelton. The image is titled ‘Winter on the Servern Valley Line’ and features a steam train travelling through a stunning snowy scene. The second card is a lovely design featuring Santa boarding the Santa Express. These cards come in packs of 10 and are £4.50 and £4 respectively.
