Charitable Giving

A sustainable Thameslink Programme

The aim of charitable giving activities for Thameslink Programme was to establish and maintain outstanding reputations with local authorities, neighbouring residents and businesses and other local stakeholders. This helps to enable successful delivery of our projects, while leaving a lasting legacy in local communities.

From 2011/12 onwards Thameslink Programme contributed £82,000 in charity fundraising and donations. At every project Thameslink Programme liaised closely with local authorities, local representatives and other interested groups to manage and minimise the effects of construction. Contractors also employed community relations representatives who distribute information about the works and provide a first contact for local communities.

This following are examples of how the London Bridge Station Redevelopment project supported charitable initiatives during the rebuild of the station.
