Scotland’s Railway colleague wins Crimestoppers award

Region & Route:
Scotland’s Railway: Scotland

Senior community engagement manager Mark Henderson has won the Crimestoppers CEO’s Corporate Volunteer Award for 2021 for supporting the charity’s campaigns across Scotland. 

In the last year, Scotland’s Railway has supported several high-profile Crimestoppers initiatives including its Fearless campaign and activity aimed at targeting ‘County Lines’ drugs gangs and rural crime.

Displaying campaign advertising in our stations and supporting the charity’s activity on social media, Scotland’s Railway has also contributed directly to funding Crimestoppers’ important work.

In making the award, the judging panel commented on the huge public-facing impact the support of Scotland’s Railway has had on the work of Crimestoppers, and commented on the variety of significant in-kind support the company provided to the charity.

Mark Henderson, senior community engagement manager, said: “We were delighted to support Crimestoppers' campaigns.

“Our partners at BTP and staff across the organisation have been equipped with information on what to look out for, we also shared the campaigns at stations and with passengers. It amazing that the work we’ve done has been recognised. It’s a real honour.”​
