As a Registered Charity, GWRT cannot provide funds to GWSR Plc for the day to day expenses of running the railway. However, it can provide Grants for projects for which plc funding is not available, to enhance the “living museum” aspect of the railway. I know that many of our supporters have expressed an interest in providing more funds for these projects and our recent Bridge 8 Appeal has raised a staggering £200,000 in less than a month. I give my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has donated – your combined efforts have achieved a fantastic result and the work can proceed in January 2022.
That appeal is now closed but we are always pleased to receive donations for future projects on GWR. I therefore invite you to donate to our General Funds to be allocated to future projects as and when required. Ways to donate are shown below.
Thank you for your support, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you at the Railway again.
