Said the following about Team KGX:

“On Saturday 22nd June 2019 GTR Great Northern staff, family & friends undertook a sponsored Night Walk through London to raise funds for the following Charities: MacMillan Cancer Support, Stroke Association & Dementia UK.

These charities being specially chosen due to the personal impact on staff & those around them at KGX. In November 2018 a much loved work colleague sadly passed away due to Cancer & a resident Staff member at KGX suffered a Stroke later returning to work following rehabilitation. A Father of one of the organisers also lost her father to Dementia in January 2018.

This special group of people reached out to all their past & present colleagues + family & friends throughout the GTR network. Collecting of funds wasn’t limited to the night walk of 13 miles, they held multiple garage sales & auctions, novelty sales & misc. railway branded items. A whopping £5,964.28 with Gift Aid was raised for these fantastic causes.

The work this team did to advertise their event & the monumental personal efforts made to carry out their promise deserves recognition from peers & superiors alike. Well done!“
