Get ready to sing your hearts out as The Rail Staff Christmas Carol Service returns on Thursday 14 December at St Mary’s Church, Somers Town, London.
Bringing together the entire industry, this year’s concert is sponsored by Porterbrook Leasing, RSSB, Rail Forum, Siemens, Network Rail, the Rail Freight Group, GBRTT, and Modern Railways magazine. As in previous years, London’s Transport Choir will lend their wonderful voices to the celebrations.
The much-loved event has been organised by the Transport Benevolent Fund CIO (TBF) for over 20 years, raising funds to help TBF continue its valuable work in supporting railway employees in need, distress, or hardship, along with other members of the wider public transport community.
TBF members pay £1.25 a week (usually through their payroll facility), giving the member, their live in partner, and dependent children access to a wide range of health, welfare, and financial benefits.
The Rail Staff Christmas Carol Service is open to all, and will feature carols and readings, followed by seasonal refreshments. Everyone is assured a very warm welcome.
Collection proceeds will be donated to charity.
