Hitachi Rail Europe does Mount Kenya

Vanessa Unwin, Matt Watson,

My page:

Thanks for visiting our page! In September 2016 we will be trekking through grassy valleys, dense rainforests and deep, rocky gorges up to Mount Kenya's Point Lenana to raise money for Railway Children. With a fundraising target minimum of £20,000, we need your help - so don’t hold back - you can start donating now.

All donations of all values are welcome, and to thank our corporate sponsors we have some great branding packages available so that your brand can share in our success throughout the challenge!

  • Our team will be wearing branded t-shirts on their adventures - £100+ donations get a logo on the back of the branded t-shirts plus promotional marketing images post-event to share
  • Any donations of £500+ get a logo on the front of the t-shirts, a mention on our website, social channels and press release following the event, plus images post-event to use for marketing activities
  • Any corporate donations of £1000+ will get a large logo and prime location on the front of the t-shirts, mentions on our website, social channels and press release, plus images post-event to share. Alongside this, you will receive two invites to an exclusive thank you dinner with all three team members and members of the Hitachi Rail Europe executive team post-event to celebrate the successful completion of the challenge!

A member of the Hitachi Rail Europe marketing team will be in touch following your donation to discuss sponsorship details.

Railway Children is an international children's charity, providing protection and opportunities for education and housing for children who live on the streets. 

Every year thousands of children across the UK, India and East Africa run away or are forced to leave homes that have become unbearable through poverty, abuse, violence and neglect..

Reaching a child as soon as possible is crucial to getting to children on the streets before an abuser can, and before they become entrenched in street life. Railway Children aims to get to children before the streets get to them.

Thanks in advance for your support - it will make such a difference.

Matt Watson and Nathan Howgego
