SUPPORTING THE RH&DR

NEW CAMPAIGN – SPONSOR A SLEEPER

This campaign is a fun way to support the Association in its fundraising efforts for the Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway’s ongoing essential track works. See this link for more information on how you can sponsor a sleeper…..or hopefully many – as you’ll see, there are a lot of them. https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/sleepersonthemarsh?success=true

FUNDRAISING CONTINUES

To all those who fundraised and/or donated in the railway’s time of need, we say a huge thank you and congratulations! The Association has donated £100,000 in total to support the railway with its Winter Works project thanks to your efforts in raising the money required for match funding. We have also granted the railway £60,000 for new rail and we are also delighted to have been able to fully fund the overhaul of Black Prince.

However – the work does not stop there. The Association raises money all year so that it can respond to requests from the railway as well as do as much as it can to secure the heritage of the line through its own projects; a good example being the Heritage Centre. We have raised and spent the funds to open our Heritage Centre. Work remains to be completed on some features and will be undertaken when Covid restrictions are lifted.

All donations, large and small are welcomed and can be made as follows:

or by cheque to the Treasurer (contact details here).

Do you shop on Amazon? If you make your Amazon purchases through Amazon Smile, you can choose the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway Association as your charity and this will assist our fundraising. See the link above.

Donations will go to the railway by way of the Association’s General Fund on which we can claim gift aid to boost the amounts. This way we can offer more support to the railway than if they fundraised directly.
