Other Ways to Get Involved

You can play a bigger role in shaping the future of the Campaign by joining the committee. We need more members to come forward. You can either stand for election, stand for any vacant office, or seek to join the committee without a specific office. The demands are as much or as little as you want. The Campaign is entirely voluntary, but all our work is taken seriously, both by CBR, and by all the organisations we deal with, from Network Rail and Transport Scotland to local and national government. We also need volunteers to staff our stall at various promotional events throughout the year. If you think you might be able to help in any capacity please get in touch to find out more.
