NORTHERN Rail has so far raised more than £10,000 for men's health charity, Movember, and donations are continuing to roll in. The train operator partnered with the charity to raise awareness and funds for programmes such as prostate and testicular cancer, mental health issues and overall health and wellbeing.

Northern launched the world's first 'Mo Train' on 1 November and followed with 50 trains in total operating right across the network. 200 Northern colleagues signed up as Mo Bros and Mo Sistas and pledged to raise money throughout November.

Northern's Managing Director, Alex Hynes, comments:- "We are thrilled to have raised so much money for a fantastic charity like Movember. With more than 4,000 men working for our company, this is a cause that is close to our hearts. We have colleagues currently affected by some of these illnesses and we all know someone supported by the many programmes Movember funds go towards.  The Mo Trains have really grabbed our customers' attention and we have had thousands of Tweets over the course of the month about them and the efforts of our employees. We are so grateful to our fantastic colleagues for getting behind the challenge and changing the face of men's health."

Jonathan Sim, Communities Manager Movember UK said:- "Northern Rail's Movember campaign was very impressive from the internal and customer facing communications to the actual mos on their trains. This pioneering initiative provided priceless awareness across a huge swathe of England and of course, much needed funds for men's health."
