#MeetPete at Merseyrail
RBF President, Pete Waterman was welcomed to Merseyside this month by regional train operator Merseyrail.
As well as being the charity's President he's most commonly known as record producer, TV presenter and DJ!
Pete, along with Faye Jaques, RBF Fundraising Manager, toured the network to meet staff and keep them informed of the work of RBF.
A keen rail enthusiast, Pete enjoyed visits to various train stations across the network, including Sandhills where he recorded a station announcement, much to the delight of passengers, and Lime Street, Birkenhead North and Liverpool Central where he enjoyed behind-the-scenes tours.
In his new role as President of the RBF, he has embarked on a ‘Meet Pete’ UK tour, promoting the charity’s work supporting railway employees and their families.
Speaking of his trip to Merseyside, Runcorn-based Pete said: “I just wanted to meet the staff and tell them about the great work that the RBF does, caring for people with a multitude of problems from money and health, to bereavement and family. We’re a friend and are always in the background to help our colleagues.”
Andy Heath, Managing Director at Merseyrail, added: “It was a pleasure to welcome Pete to our network last week.
“His passion for the rail industry and the work he’s doing with the RBF shone through during his visit and it was great for our staff to hear first-hand how the charity can support them in many areas of their lives. Pete is welcome to visit us at Merseyrail anytime.”
