With our northern extension to Lawley due to open at Easter 2015 the need to raise additional funds to finish the Lawley works and then the push south to Doseley is imperative. There are many ways that you can help us to achieve our goals. You can become a member by joining the TSR with the benefits being free travel on the TSR, regular newsletters and other member benefits. You can make a donation either as a one-off payment or a monthly recurring payment via the Paypal ‘Donate’ button on our homepage. You can also raise much needed funds by using the easyfundraising toolbar from easyfundraising.org.uk
easyfundraising.org.uk is a great way to raise money for charities, schools, sports clubs, community groups, and other good causes just by shopping online. You don’t pay anything extra. So far we’ve raised over £7 million for causes throughout the UK. If just 150 people were to raise £20 a year by using the easyfundraising toolbar then the railway could see an income of £3000. This equates to a quarter of the total cost needed to restore our Peckett 0-4-0ST ‘Ironbridge No.3’ to operational condition.
In addition to this you can help our fundraising by using the easysearch facility. By using easysearch instead of Google or any other search engine, you can make a real difference. easysearch is completely FREE and by making just 10 searches a day, you could raise around £20 a year for to your chosen cause.
As well as raising funds, easysearch also gives you the best search results available on web. Today, the Internet is so big that different search engines will often deliver different results for the same search. So, by combining the strengths of several search engines together – Yahoo!, MIVA, and many more – you get the very best results in terms of accuracy and relevance, which means you’ll find what you’re looking for quickly and easily every time – all in one ‘easy’ search!
As you can see, you can support us in many different ways, ways that will help us to achieve our goal of steaming to Ironbridge.
