Thermal-wear giant Damart spread a little warmth at a busy railway station.

The company, whose warehousing facility is at Steeton, donated thermal clothing to Northern Rail staff at Leeds.

And infrared technology was used to highlight to commuters where they were losing body heat.

“This event showcased how our thermals do their job, and demonstrated to station staff and commuters how beneficial a Damart thermal layer can be,” said Phil Anderson, the firm’s marketing and e-commerce director.

“The infrared technology shows a thermal layer does work and is essential in keeping the chill at bay. Station staff work hard in sometimes very cold conditions and we’re delighted to be helping keep them warm.”

Alex Hynes – for North-ern Rail, which operates services on the Airedale line – said: “Our teams on the ground definitely feel the cold when the temperature drops during winter.

“This fantastic donation of Damart’s famous thermals will help keep them warm.”
