How will you be remembered?

When you decide to leave a gift in your Will to the Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust, you're investing in the future of a wonderful heritage asset. No matter what the value of your legacy is, you can be sure that it will be put to good use. It might help to fund the restoration of a locomotive or carriage, or pay for essential repairs to the Railway's buildings, bridges, viaducts or the track itself.

"The sense of achievement at re-opening the Railway, which we thought was impossible, was a dream come true. Collectively we've all worked together to provide someting of excellence for future generations. I want to make sure that the Railway survives me, and outlives me." Malcolm Broadhurst, longstanding volunteer.

Often, a gift in a Will has meant we've been able to start a major project that otherwise wouldn't have seen the light of day. The Carriage Shed at Kidderminster, The Engine House Visitor Centre at Highley, the Heritage Apprenticeship Scheme - all these essential aspects of today's SVR received their initial financial boost from gifts in Wills.

Pledge a Gift in your Will and become a Guardian

When you let us know that you will be leaving a gift in your Will to the SVR Charitable Trust, we'll invite you to join a very special group of people in our Guardians' Club, all of whom feel as passionately as you about making sure the Railway has a sustainable future.

You'll receive a gold Guardian's lapel pin badge, that we hope you will wear with pride as a sign of your commitment to the SVR. We'll let you have regular updates on the projects we're involved with, and the ways in which we're helping the Railway. We'll also invite you to special thank you events at the SVR.
