Samaritans Train Runs Into Swanage

SW Train to Swanage

8:30am 14th June 2014

400 passengers will be making an exclusive journey today from Sheffield to Swanage on board a high speed train.

They all have one thing in common, they're involved with the Samaritans.

Train staff will also be donating their days wages to the charity who provide a vital telephone support service.

East Midlands Trains Head of Operations Strategy Darren Ward said:

"What we do is a fraction of what Samaritans achieve, and we consider it a perk of the job to be involved with an organization that does such wonderful work."

Samaritans CEO Catherine Johnstone said:      
"We are hugely grateful to East Midlands Trains, Network Rail and everyone who has taken so much trouble to make this event a success. The money raised will help Samaritans to continue to be there for anyone struggling to cope."
