A Lowestoft station worker has been recognised with an international award after raising thousands for charity.
Laura Englestone, ticket office supervisor at Lowesoft and Great Yarmouth train stations, was named Abellio ‘Employee of the Year.’
In the past year she has raised more than £3,000 for charity and consistently organises events that brighten the workplace – for customers and staff alike.
Miss Englestone said: “On the night I was completely shocked to have won in the live international vote as all the finalists were absolutely brilliant.
“I felt so proud and honoured to have won.
“I work alongside some great people and this award is as much for them as it is for me.”
Jamie Burles, managing director at Greater Anglia, congratulated the ticket office supervisor and said: “We know that we have colleagues all over the network making a difference to customers every day.
“Recognising individuals and teams at a group level through the Abellio Achievement Awards will help to further drive a culture of excellence in everything we do and demonstrates the dedication and commitment of all our staff to provide excellent service and performance to our customers.”
