Retired Rail Community Event
On Monday 19th June, we held a Retired Rail Community Event, kindly hosted by Health Shield at their office in Crewe. This event, part of a new service offering from RBF, provided an opportunity for retired railway people to get together, share stories and look back on their time in rail with their contemporaries.
Paul Shires, Commercial Director at Health Shield, opened the event, and RBF President Pete Waterman joined to share memories from his time in the industry. RBF’s Services Manager Ryan Morgan also delivered a presentation on the new services launched by the charity to support the retired community, including the Retired Fund and Befriending Service.
RBF President Pete Waterman said:
“My first job was in rail so it’s an industry I love and continue to support. Rail has changed enormously in the last 50 years, which is why it is so important to connect with those who share memories from the days gone by. Loneliness amongst pensioners has worsened since the pandemic, which is why we are keen to support the retired community and help combat this issue.”
