The South Rail Systems Alliance’s (SRSA) Transformation team recently spent two days volunteering supporting their Royal British Legion Industries’ (RBLI) workshop in Aylesford.

Working alongside the RBLI’s team of armed forces veterans and colleagues with disabilities, the group assisted with the packaging of traditional and solar powered Tommy Figures along with commemorative wooden Union Jack wall art amongst other products.

Speaking about the volunteering days, SRSA’s Head of Transformation, Nick Matthews said “It was a privilege to work alongside Britain’s Bravest manufacturing Company and its staff.

“The team made us all very welcome and a very enjoyable, but more importantly rewarding time was had by all.”

RBLI Senior Community Corporate Fundraising Manager, Selena Goldsmith said “a huge, huge thank you to all of you for giving up some of your time and volunteering in our Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company.

“We’re absolutely delighted with your help and support, the team were highly productive and made a significant impact.”

These Tommy Remembrance products are all available on the official RBLI merchandise page, with proceeds from sales going towards the RBLI’s mission of supporting veterans and those with disabilities, whether it be providing housing for a homeless veteran, or supporting ex-forces members back into civilian employment.

The SRSA is comprised of Colas Rail, Network Rail and AECOM, an alliance created to deliver a portfolio of works across the southern region of the UK over a 10-year period.
