Seven routes, one day and a great cause

, August 30th, 2017

On Thursday 21st September Simon Clarke, one of CRL’s Community Rail Development Officers is attempting to travel on all seven of the routes covered by the Community Rail in Lancashire area in the space of one day’s timetables. The challenge is being carried out to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.

A donations page has been set up on the My Donate website at the following link:, where you can support Simon on his community rail adventure.

Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers. There are currently 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to 1 million by 2025. The fundraising will help support people to live well with dementia today and to fund research to help find a cure for tomorrow.
