Over 200 homeless people in London will be treated to an extravagant holiday party thanks to some rail workers at the Euston Train station.
30 volunteers from Britain’s transit company, Network Rail, will be working alongside charity staff in order to throw a Christmas bash complete with decorations, lunch, and dinner on December 25th.
The rail workers will reportedly be serving up the meals, chatting up the homeless visitors throughout the celebration, supervising the event, and cleaning up afterwards.
St Mungos and Streets Kitchen, the two charities that are helping to coordinate the event, say that they have already distributed invitations to individuals sleeping on the streets.
Steve Naybour, head of transformation in Network Rail’s track team, said: “Using a station to give homeless people a Christmas dinner and some festive cheer is a great thing to do.
“Thousands and thousands of my colleagues will already be working on Christmas Day to improve the railway for passengers. Working on Christmas Day is pretty much par for the course for many of us who work for Network Rail, but this year – because I wasn’t scheduled to work – myself and a handful of colleagues came up with this plan to feed some of London’s homeless instead.”
“Everything, including people’s time, has been donated. And I can’t think of a better way to spend my Christmas Day – it even beats working on the railway!”
