Porterbrook Announced as Main Sponsor for National iRail Competition

Parliamentary Reception for Rail Forum East Midlands

On Wednesday 7th February 2018, Pauline Latham MP for Mid Derbyshire hosted a Parliamentary reception at the House of Commons for the Rail Forum East Midlands. The event was an opportunity for the Rail industry to come together and show support for the Rail Forum and the iRail outreach programme. The event saw Porterbrook announced as the main sponsors of the National iRail Competition which will see the winners and runners up from each regional iRail event come together to participate in a national competition.

Present at the event were many parliamentary dignitaries including Jo Johnston, Minister of State at the Department for Transport and Minister for London who presented last year’s winning iRail team from Loughborough High School with a commemorative model train.

There was great support from all attending for the iRail programme with many already involved. If you would like to know more, please contact Michelle Lewis, Programme Lead iRail and Big Bang Midlands at:
