RIA announce RBF as Charity of the Year

The Railway Industry Association (RIA) has announced the Railway Benefit Fund (RBF) as its Charity of The Year for 2024.

RIA is the voice of the UK rail supply community; the national trade association for UK-based suppliers to the railway industry. Established in 1875, RIA has 360 member companies from across the supply chain. It supports the delivery of a bigger and better rail industry, representing the sector as an essential generator of economic growth, jobs and investment, supporting a low carbon form of mass transit for communities across the UK.

RIA will be supporting RBF throughout 2024, including taking part in our ‘Station to Station’ Challenge, and inviting us to their key events such as the RISE Awards.

Darren Caplan, Chief Executive of the Railway Industry Association (RIA), said: “The Railway Benefit Fund plays a hugely important role in supporting current, former and retired railway people and their families across the UK. The Railway Industry Association is proud that the RBF is our Charity of the Year for 2024 and we look forward to working with Jo and her team in promoting the charity and its work among RIA members.”

Jo Kaye, Chief Executive of the Railway Benefit Fund (RBF), said: “We are delighted that RIA have chosen the Railway Benefit Fund as their Charity of the Year for 2024. Their support will be crucial to us as a small charity, enabling us to meet the rising demand for our services, and raising awareness of the work we do within the rail supply community. We look forward to attending RIA’s events throughout the year and networking with their members.”
