‘Rocket’ Fighting Fund…..Counting the Coins! Update 06/11/15

After the recent boiler exam on our loco ‘Rocket’ revealed that a number of repairs needed to be carried out to some broken ‘stays’ before it could return to steam so a ‘Fighting Fund’ was set up to finance this work. The work is expected to be finished in time for our Santa Specials. We still have a way to go and every penny donated enables us to get ‘Rocket’ back in to steam sooner. If you would like to contribute¬† then you can either use the donate button on the homepage or contact our Commercial Director, Mark Paynter, for further details. Thank you to everyone who can help and to those who already have. With your continued help ‘Rocket’ will soon be fighting fit!

As of today Fri 06th Nov we have hit the ¬£1000 mark towards Rocket’s Fighting Fund. This is a tremendous achievement and our thanks goes to everyone who has contributed. We still need to raise as much as we can and every extra penny we can raise will mean we can return Rocket to steam that much sooner! Your donation will reserve you a place on the ‘Wall of Generosity’.

Our thanks go to those who have donated so far and here is the full ‘Wall of Generosity’ (Anon refers to those who are afraid their wife might find out).
