Network Rail‘s volunteers have been at Solihull railway station today to help passengers get to the UK’s leading exhibition for blind and partially sighted people.
The event is being run in Solihull over two days (10 and 11 July) by Queen Alexandra College.

Network Rail employees are entitled to five days’ volunteer leave every year to help UK registered charities or community projects.

“We cannot thank the Network Rail volunteers enough for their support and assisting visitors to get to and from Sight Village.
