National Awards announce Railway Children as Charity Partner

The SME National Business Awards are delighted to announce today that RAILWAY CHILDREN will be their Charity Partner for 2017.

The awards are closed for this year. More information at These awards are a celebration of the best SMEs from throughout the UK.

The awards final will take place at the iconic Wembley Stadium on the 1st December. With over 500 people expected, they hope to raise a significant amount of money for this very worthy cause.

Speaking on behalf of Railway Children, Dave Ellis, Corporate Partnerships Manager commented “Railway Children is incredibly proud to have been chosen as this year’s Charity partner for the SME National Business Awards.  As a charity we have grown from helping 200 street children in our first year to having supported 270,000 in the 22 years later since in India, East Africa and here in the UK. With so many of our valuable corporate partnerships being with SMEs themselves, we are reminded on a daily basis of just how much impact small and medium-sized organisations really can have upon not just the economy, but also upon the lives of children who would otherwise be completely alone and vulnerable on the streets.”
