Railway hits jackpot

The Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust has succeeded in meeting a £1 million fundraising challenge well ahead of schedule and The Heritage Lottery Fund has pledged to match every pound donated, which will contribute towards an endowment fund to safeguard the future of the SVR. Chair of the SVR Charitable Trust Hugh McQuade said, “We’ve been inspired by the passion and generosity of our supporters.
