The GWSR needs URGENT Help

Major landslip at Gotherington endangers future of the line with funds drying up because of the Coronavirus effect
 
This is an Urgent appeal for funds needed to complete the landslip repair at Gotherington
You can help this cause by donating to us either:
by Bank Transfer to Sort Code 30-90-89 Account 47638368 using the reference ‘LANDSLIP’ plus your membership number (if applicable)
or by sending your cheque payable to GWRT to The Chairman, GWRT, Churchward House, Winchcombe Railway Station, Winchcombe, Glos GL54 5LD.

 In either case, if you are a UK taxpayer and feel able to download, complete, scan and e-mail our Gift Aid form to trust.chairman@gwsr.com we will be able to claim 25% Gift Aid. Alternatively, you can print, complete and return it to the above address.

As of the 20th March 2020 work is well under way to repair the landslip at Gotherington, but we urgently need £250,000 to complete this work. The impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic with its associated loss of income has left the Railway in a precarious position. If the work doesn’t continue to the end of the current phase, the slip will continue to deteriorate. If we stop now, there is a real danger that when are allowed to open, trains will not be able to run south of Gotherington. We still have to pay for all the materials on site and on order, added to this would be the additional costs of demobilising the contractor workforce and then remobilising later in the year to complete the works.
