Employees at London Overground Rail Operations Limited (LOROL) have donated more than £850 to the Railway Children charity.
The company pledged £1 to the charity for every annual employee survey completed, resulting in the highest response rate to date.
In a presentation at Willesden Junction station, LOROL managing director Steve Murphy, and some of the team involved in raising the funds, handed the donation to Railway Children representative Dave Ellis.
Mr Murphy said: “I am incredibly proud of our generous team. From train drivers to customer hosts, they all work tirelessly across the London Overground network to not just provide an exceptional service but also to raise funds for charity. It is a pleasure to make this donation on behalf of LOROL to the Railway Children in recognition of the work the charity does.”
Dave Ellis, corporate partnerships manager for the Railway Children, said: “We are very grateful to the LOROL team for their donation and continued support.”
LOROL employees from all over the London Overground network regularly carry out fundraising efforts for charity ranging from internal schemes to sporting challenges.
The next fundraising event takes place on Sunday, July 8, when a 12-person LOROL team will aim to raise even more funds for the Railway Children by competing in the British 10km London Run.
LOROL, which operates London Overground rail services on behalf of TfL, employs 1,200 people throughout the rail network and is headquartered in Swiss Cottage.
