Llangollen railway needs your help

In light of the current government advice, we have made the difficult decision on Tuesday 17th March, to close Llangollen Railway until further notice.

While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) at the railway, the wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our absolute priority. Matters of health and safety have our complete attention, which has led to this closure.

Due to this WE NEED YOUR HELP. Llangollen Railway is a registered charity (1046614) the railway rely heavily on income from our visitors and events without this there be a substantial impact on our future. Please help by donating to give the railway a fighting chance to be able to continue once this current pandemic is over.

Llangollen Railway can’t claim insurance compensation for business interruption.
The government has not offered monetary aid to charities yet.
The only government help currently available would put the railway into significant debt, which may take years to pay off.
We could potentially lose up to £600,000 over the upcoming weeks. Figures of this magnitude could threaten the very existence of the railway. Please help now and support Llangollen Railway to ensure we survive.

Please help keep Llangollen Railway alive for the volunteers visitors and staff, donate today.
