RSSB announce RBF as Charity of the Year

The Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) have announced that the Railway Benefit Fund will be their charity of the year for 2023.

Ten charities were put forward for RSSB’s charity of the year and RBF came out as the clear winner. Those who nominated RBF had glowing praise for the cause, citing its compassion and dedication to helping any individual connected to the railways. They highlighted the positive impact RBF has on members of the railway community and their families; providing a much needed helping hand in difficult times and showing true spirit within the rail industry.

We chose the RBF because we want to provide the best possible assistance to those working or retired from the rail industry who need legal or financial help, guidance and support. We believe that by raising funds for RBF we can support them to help make a difference and promote a more compassionate rail community.

RSSB plan to host six internal events spread throughout the year, with the first planned for March. In addition to this, they are aiming to promote and take part in RBF’s own events, including their popular Railway Family Week fundraiser at the end of April. To increase engagement and open up a dialog within the rail industry, they also plan on using their social media channels, as well as corporate social channels, to further promote the RBF’s actions and initiatives within their membership and the wider rail industry.

Thank you RSSB for choosing us and we look forward to working with you this year!
