SilverRailers working for a better tomorrow

As we are now well and truly into 2022, we reflect on 2021, and we focus on the year ahead of us. One important factor that we recognise here at SilverRail is the importance of continuing to “Do Good”.

We believe in a better tomorrow, whether by making rail easy and cutting carbon emissions, supporting one another and building awareness of diversity, or by giving back to our community and volunteering.

In our 2021 fitness challenge, SilverRailers stepped, repped and dropped to raise money to build a well at St Joseph’s Junior Secondary School in Sierra Leone proving clean running water for 670 students!

Now that we have got this water source in the school, I can use the toilet and clean up myself very easily. I will no more be distracted in class due to looking for water to drink.
said 14-year-old student, Adama S

Throughout the year our team also volunteered at beach clean ups, gamathons to raise money for cancer, ran international mental health support calls during the pandemic, Christmas shoebox packing for Samaritans, fundraising brainstorming and event planning at Limbpower and supporting their local churches!

We want to make it even more accessible for our team to help others, because after all, we are Stronger Together! We are incredibly excited to be partnering with Matchable so SilverRailers can offer their expertise and skills to help those in need.

Watch this space for progress!
