Rail Aid Auction Means Business

Commercial Value Lots are Big Business

Rail Aid’s auction has over 130 auction lots, with new lots still coming in. Many lots have a commercial value and are items that money can’t buy. Here’s a glimpse of a few packages targeted at businesses, that are on course to be the mega fundraisers for Railway Children.

Exclusive Dinner with UK Rail Bosses

A unique opportunity for 7-10 guests to dine with the Rail Aid Ambassadors. Dinner party guests include Network Rail Chair & CEO Sir Peter Hendy CBE and Andrew Haines, TfL Commissioner Andy Byford and HS2 CEO Mark Thurston, along with other Rail Aid Ambassadors.

London Underground, Network Rail & Trainline Advertising

Calling all marketeers and media agencies. Not one, but a choice of three advertising packages, are in this year’s auction. These are big ticket items with a combined value of over £300,000, that could be picked up for a bargain price.


Exclusive Crossrail Tour with COO Howard Smith

A once in a lifetime opportunity for four people to go behind the scenes at Crossrail. Travel on an Elizabeth Line train from Paddington to Liverpool Street. Experience a personal tour of the Elizabeth Line part of Liverpool Street Station.
