In line with previous years, TransPennine Express ran a campaign in January 2021

In line with previous years, TransPennine Express ran a campaign in January 2021 to allocate over £55k of funding for Transform. The fund supports community projects which seek to tackle youth unemployment, promote social inclusion and improve the environment. Applicants can apply for funding of up to £5,000 to help deliver their projects tackling one or more of these themes. Overall, we had 56 applications with a geographic split across our
network.

Abbot’s Lea School (Liverpool Lime Street) £4,600
The Island (York) £5,000
