A Message from Glyn Cornish, Chairman, GWRT
Dear shareholders, members, supporters and visitors, the GWRT Emergency Appeal was officially launched on Sunday, 22nd March and I am delighted to tell you that as at 13.00 today (Monday, 30th), the appeal stands at a massive £76,348. I would like to thank everyone who has donated an amount, no matter how large or small – your financial support and many messages of goodwill have been overwhelming and humbling.
Having said that, we haven’t reached our target of £250,000 yet so if you haven’t donated and wish to do so, I would love to hear from you.
The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway is a volunteer operated heritage railway in Gloucestershire and Worcestershire offering a round trip of 28 miles. It uses part of the route of the former Great Western Railway's main line from Birmingham to Cheltenham which used to run via Stratford-upon-Avon.
It now operates steam and heritage diesel trains between Cheltenham Racecourse and Broadway through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Cotswolds. The line commands wonderful views of the nearby sleepy hamlets and villages, with outstanding outlooks across to the Malvern Hills and beyond.
