D2 Rail to Partner with Mustard Tree in Manchester

D2 Rail is partnering with Homeless charity Mustard Tree, to support the amazing ways in which they help people across Greater Manchester in poverty and facing homelessness.

As a member of the corporate business community in Manchester, we are delighted to help them in their efforts to create opportunities for people to help themselves. Through providing practical support, friendship, connections into work and improvements to health and wellbeing, the D2 Rail team hope to make a positive change across Greater Manchester.

D2’s Programme Information Manager, Sarah Barnes, had a walk around the centre to really get a feel for what the Mustard Tree team are doing to help the community. Following this inspiring visit, the D2 team has formed a committee to organise fundraising events for 2019 so watch this space!

As a company supporting a charity, it is very important to us that we understand the impact we are having and for our staff to feel really engaged with the cause.  To this end, D2 Rail are arranging for Sophie Appleton, Corporate Partnership Manager from the Mustard Tree team to join them on their ‘D2 Rail Day’ on the 17th January, giving everyone the opportunity to ask questions and get a better understanding of how they can help.

Mustard Tree offers a variety of opportunities for companies and their employees to get involved. From sharing skills by volunteering, offering work experience opportunities, to fun fundraising challenges.
Sarah also added:

“It’s such an amazing and inspiring feeling to know that we have the potential to make a real difference to these lives. We look forward to supporting the challenges faced in our community and to raise funds for Mustard Tree now and in the future.”

Last but not least, D2 Rail placed a donation box in their last team brief of the year, promising to drop off all donations to the Mustard Tree before Christmas.
