Grand Central Rail supports Movember

Movember

Grand Central Rail unveiled its temporary new look today -  a new logo (or ‘mogo’) on its fleet of trains - in support of men’s health charity, Movember. The new moustachioed logo will adorn the trains, which run between London,Yorkshire and the North East, until early December.

Staff from the company - drivers, conductors, customer services assistants and managers - are raising money and awareness for men’s health by growing a moustache and fundraising for the charity during Movember.

Followers and passengers who share a photo of the new ‘mogos’ - whether from the platform or on-board the trains - could win a £250 donation to Movember in their name. Just use the hashtag #traintache and share the photos with the company @gc_rail on Twitter and on Facebook.com/grandcentralrail. 

Sam Dyson, organising the Movember activity at GrandCentral Rail, said: “We’ve got a great team growing moustaches and supporting us with fundraising. We’re supporting Movember because they do brilliant work in funding  programmes which save the lives of men across the world  affected by cancer and mental health issues. It’s fantastic to see Grand Central’s trains wearing their own moustaches and it’s great to see our staff and passengers sporting their new facial hair!”

To be in with a chance of winning a £250 donation to Movember in their name, people can share a photo of the trains with their moustaches, or a photo of themselves with a moustache on board a Grand Central train.

The temporary new logos were designed and produced free of charge by Cravens and  PTM Design in support of Grand Central’s Movember campaign.
