The biggest train operating company in the Bradford district has raised more than £15,000 for a cancer charity.

Northern Rail, which operates trains on the Airedale, Caldervale and Wharfedale lines, has raised the cash for this year’s Marie Curie Cancer Care’s Great Daffodil Appeal.

Northern created 50 ‘Daff trains’ which travelled the length and breadth of the network to promote the Great Daffodil Appeal that runs in March and April.

A series of fundraising days were also held at stations across the north of England.

Northern employees donated an hour of their time to wear bright yellow hats and tabards and collect much needed cash from commuters.

Alex Hynes, managing director for Northern Rail, said: “I would like to thank our employees and customers who have gone over and above to raise thousands of pounds for a very worthwhile cause.”
