Avon Valley Railway Corona Survival Fund

Why we need your help

As a small charity we are reviewing all options available to us and reviewing advice given to us by the Government, our NHS and our professional body the Heritage Railway Association. Along with the rest of the country, we are facing an extraordinary set of challenges  with the Corona Virus outbreak.

The situation is literally one that could break the Railway, as we cancel events and steaming days in order to fall in with the guidance and restrictions to us all that are necessary to stem the epidemic.

As with most businesses, our future is most uncertain. While we continue to monitor Governbment advice, we are likely to cancel train services, courses, and special events. We are currently continuing to offer a reduced buffet service for our regular members of the local community whorely on us for this.

These are never very easy decisions, and all will be done to protect our customers, volunteers and staff and, ultimately, the viability and continued existence of the railway, which has always been an extremely valuable local community asset.

More than ever we will rely on your support to weather this storm. As the economic climate becomes more difficult over the future months we really need all the support we can get through donations to keep us on track and keep this wonderful heritage resource available for all to enjoy in the future.

To assist in this endeavour we have temprarily closed all our individual project appeals and replacing them with The Avon Valley Railway Survival Appeal.

Please help us by donating to this appeal and ensure that the Railway carries on through this difficult crisis and into a brighter, healthier future.

Many thanks

Roger Eynon, Chair.

Happy to support you. You have always been so friendly and welcoming on our many visits and we really enjoyed our DMU driver experience when the other person didn?t turn up and instead of cutting it short you let my wife have a go instead.
