Merseyrail show their support for RBF

Many thanks to our super supporters at Merseyrail who, during 2019, raised over £9,000 for RBF. 

It was an action packed year with lots going on from collecting loose change in our money tins, to a raffle and the sale of RBF Christmas cards.

A large proportion of the money raised was through the promotion of payroll giving. This is where as little as £5 a month is donated directly from your salary before tax, meaning the tax relief given on donations made is then passed straight to the charity. Many staff filled in payroll giving forms which are then processed by the HR team.

“Our staff continue to be extremely supportive of RBF. They have seen first hand how they have been there for colleagues when they needed a helping hand. We are delighted to have raised so much this year and will continue to support RBF as Corporate Partners, payroll giving and other fundraising activities.”

Jane English, HR Director, Merseyrail

Merseyrail became Corporate Partners in February 2020.

We are so grateful for the support and friendship we have with Merseyrail – Thank you!
