As a registered charity the cancellation of our passenger trains, events and the closure of our commercial outlets hit us hard. With the ‘Worth Saving’ Appeal together with other fundraising initiatives we delivered our target in just under two months, a magnificent response at a crucial time. The help of our supporters has seen us through this difficult time and the Railway is saved for now.
But the difficulties that COVID-19 has thrust upon us are not over. Although we are resuming public steam hauled passenger services on Wednesday 19th August, we are under no illusions that there are many more huge financial and physical challenges to come and for this reason, our ‘Worth Saving’ Appeal remains open and your continued support will go towards helping the KWVR to continue doing what we do best.
