Virgin TrainsA group of nine young adults and staff from Wishing Well were guests of Virgin Trains on a trip from Crewe to Rhyl last week. The party were on their way to their first ever week long residential course in North Wales.



The group met at The Calm Corner, Virgin Trains’ newly opened quiet area at Crewe designed for people who would benefit from escaping the hustle and bustle of a busy station environment. Next stop Platform 11, and the Virgin Trains’ service to North Wales.



“Travelling by train can be extremely daunting for a lot of my young people,” explained Jan Melia, SEN Service Lead at The Wishing Well. “What most people would consider an everyday task can be a real hurdle for some, which is why trips like this are so important.”



“Virgin Trains didn’t hesitate to support and went above and beyond to ensure our people were really looked after. And the new Calm Corner is a wonderful addition, a real safe haven. Let’s hope it’s the first of many.”



The excited group were looked after by Natalie Beer, Team Leader for Virgin Trains at Crewe who travelled with them as far as Chester.



“It was great to meet everyone and see so many happy and smiling faces,” explained Natalie. “We want our stations and trains to be fully inclusive and were only too pleased to help play our small part in what sounds like a great adventure.”



Wishing Well is a local charity whose aims are to empower and support the community and social participation, whilst encouraging confidence, ambition and personal development of their people.
