Network Rail worker to take on London Marathon for the Railway Benefit Fund

Barry McLaughlin, a route control manager for Network Rail Scotland, is taking on the London Marathon to raise money for charity the Railway Benefit Fund (RBF).

Barry, who has worked in rail for 31 years, is aiming to raise £2,000 for RBF, a charity which provides financial support, help and advice for current and retired railway employees.

He said: “The Railway Benefit Fund is a charity very close to my heart so I jumped at the chance to take on this challenge. I’m running the London Marathon to not only raise money for RBF, but also to raise awareness of the charity’s fantastic work and the vital services they offer to the industry.


“With many of us currently facing a cost of living crisis, I’m delighted that the money I raise will allow RBF to continue supporting members of our Railway Family who have fallen on hard times.”

The marathon takes place on Sunday 2nd October. To donate, visit:–mclaughlin-3f223
