At the end of July East Midlands Trains ran a special train to Scarborough to celebrate the last of the ‘Paxman Valenta’ high speed train engines in use on its route. Proceeds from the day are to be donated to The Railway Children Charity.
Money was raised not just through tickets sales but also by the company auctioning a ride in the driver’s cab, selling the ‘headboard’ from the service on eBay and by donations received from passengers and staff on the day.
The final total can now be revealed as £7,630.93.
Darren Ward, Head of Operations Strategy & Implementation for East Midlands Trains, who was instrumental in making this charity event happen said “What started as a service to Scarborough to mark the end of an era for our company has turned into an event that has raised a huge amount of money for a very worthy cause close to all our hearts in the rail industry. We couldn’t be happier about that.”
A cheque presentation will take place at Derby railway station on Monday 15th September at 16.00. Darren Ward will be presenting a cheque to Dave Ellis, Corporate Partnership Manager for The Railway Children.
