DRS Open Day – Saturday 19th July 2014
On Saturday 19th July DRS welcomed over three thousand visitors to our annual charity event that this year was hosted at our Gresty Bridge Depot in Crewe.
The ever increasing popular event saw record numbers of visitors keen to get a close look at the DRS fleet of locomotives including the new Class 68. Exhibitors and staff were overwhelmed by the numbers who came along despite the challenges of the weather. The atmosphere on the day was fantastic and no one let the rain dampen their spirits!
The Open Day rasied a staggering £17,348.88 for the DRS Sponsorship & Donations fund that gives employees the oppertunity to apply for a donation should they be invloved in a charitable activity.
Following the event Chris Connelly, Commercial Director for DRS said “On behalf of the Executive Team I would like to express our sincere thanks for all your efforts in support of this year’s Open Day at Crewe and look forward to allocating this money to the many worthy causes which are close to employee’s hearts“.
DRS would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who visited the Open Day, to the exhibitors who supported the event, British Transport Police, Network Rail and St Johns Ambulance…. We look forward to seeing you all again next year!
