Over £1,000 raised for CALM in Festive fundraising

01/01/19

LNER staff from across the route were out and about in December wearing their Christmas jumpers and fancy dress outfits in order to raise money for the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM).

CALM is leading a movement against male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. CALM works to prevent male suicide by providing services for men who are down or in crisis, and by campaigning for culture change around issues including suicide, mental health and masculinity.

To raise funds for the charity, Ray McMahon, Gary Davidson and Angela West, who are based in Edinburgh, dressed up as Panto Dames, entertaining customers and injecting a bit of festive spirit into their journeys. Elsewhere, LNER staff across the route wore their Christmas jumpers and collected donations for the charity at stations up and down the East Coast mainline.
