Patrons Open letter
It is no secret that the Railway Children charity is close to our hearts. It is in this context that we write to you concerning The Railway Ball, the charity’s main fundraiser, asking if you would please support this event.
Since it was founded, Railway Children has helped more than a quarter of a million children, previously stricken by abuse, poverty and starvation, come to know a better life; living in hope and without fear. Each year the charity supports children from the UK, Africa and India who, through neglect or poverty, find themselves in unbearable situations, homeless and on the street.
The Ball provides a great opportunity to demonstrate commitment to the UK Rail industry, raise awareness of your brand and meet with many of the C-suite leaders from across the rail sector. Not just from Network Rail, TfL, HS1 and HS2, but also the Train Operating Companies, as well as the wider industry supply chain and its advisers.
The Railway Ball will take place on Friday 30th November 2018 at the InterContinental London –The O2. We hope this invite explains the value this occasion brings to the children who will directly benefit from your support. May we warmly encourage your firm to join the 1,200 guests who are already booked to attend and support this year’s Railway Ball, by taking a table and/or by becoming a lead sponsor, giving a top profile and branding (and not as expensive as one might imagine…).
We hope you will accept this invitation to join us.
