Bluebell Railway Double dash week raises a staggering £200,000

Further to my post last week regarding the Bluebell Trusts’ Double Dash with an aim to raise £40,000 in a week  that would be matched by major supporters of the railway, I am pleased to report that the donations kept rolling in.

The original target of £40,000 was reached early in the week and a further £20,000 of matched funding was also then secured. The desire to help the Bluebell Railway reach East Grinstead is obviously strong as despite the matched target being reached donations have continued and now reached a staggering total in excess of £200,000!

Congratulations to the Bluebell Railway for this initiative and many thanks to all whom have donated to greatly assist with the completion of the extension of the line to East Grinstead.
