Crisis Fund Update - 17/04/2020

The Spa Valley Railway is facing uncertain times and we need your help to continue running our popular Steam, Diesel and Dining services through the High Weald of Kent and East Sussex.

We need to fund raise £5,000.00 a month to cover our bills and save towards our insurance premium, which is normally paid for by Gala proceeds.

We have switched off everything we can, some items need to remain on, so that we are in a position to run trains when Government Guidelines allow us to.

If you can donate or contribute anything via PayPal we are extremely grateful ( but only if you are able to do so, your health and wellbeing comes first and foremost. 

Within the first few hours of being closed and locked down, we launched our online crisis appeal and we thank each and everyone who has kindly donated so far.  Soon after we launched our online membership portal, this is important as it allows people to renew their membership during this period and it also saves our Membership Secretary from having to visit a bank, to pay in the cheques.

I'm please to report at the end of first month's crisis fund raising, you have raised the following for the Crisis Fund today:-

Paypal Donations                £2185.88 
Bank Donations                   £3022.00 - this includes £237.00 made with membership renewals. 

A total of                              £5207.88  

In addition on top of funds already raised:-

  • There have been other additional offers of financial support.
  • many of these donations have the benefit of being Gift Aided.
  • A number of you have also set up standing orders, and I will report on those in the month the funds are received.  

Thanks you for all your support, we have surpassed the first months target, but unfortunately it looks like this crisis will continue for awhile, and any further financial help that can be given will be appreciated. 

We have set up and operational in TW&ERPS a specific bank account for Crisis Fund Donations. The details are:-

Bank Account Name  - Crisis Fund SVR 

Sort Code - 55-70-13
Account Number - 85507474
Could donors also include their name, and GA if they are able to Gift Aid their donation.

All the best, 

David Cross - Treasurer Tunbridge Wells and Eridge Railway Preservation Society.
