Funding boost for SVR apprentice

The Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust has secured new funding towards training an engineering apprentice in the Railway’s Heritage Skills Training Academy. The Hendy and Pendle Charitable Trust has made a donation of £9,500 towards the costs of training 19-year-old George Brogan, who is currently in the second year of his apprenticeship as one of a new generation of heritage engineers. Sir Peter Hendy CBE, chairman of Network Rail and founder of the trust, recently visited the SVR to witness in detail the training programme that George and his fellow apprentices are undergoing.
