‘More people than ever need our help, not just at Christmas but every other day of the year,’ says Liam Johnston, Senior Chaplain to the Railway Industry. ‘People need the independent, confidential, impartial short term pastoral care the railway chaplains bring. But we’re a charity, and our income isn’t meeting our expenditure.’
Chaplains are supporting the railway community through the ups and downs of life’s Journey. It might be a driver of a train involved in a fatal incident, a member of staff whose child is critically ill with cancer or someone who has been verbally or physically abused by a member of the public, but whatever the reason, your chaplains want to help support everyone. The demand for our services has grown and this has stretched the team’s capacity to support everyone. Your Christmas donation today will provide vital support to the chaplaincy and your donation could help us protect the mental health and well-being of a member of the railway family.
