More than 200 guests had a fabulous time at our 2016 Race Day, raising over £20,000, with further donations from Worcester Racecourse of £3 for every ticket sold. The Chairman of the organising committee, Phil Dutton of Handelsbanken, Worcester, said: “When you get the necessary business impetus behind an event like this, it’s amazing how much of a difference you can make. We’re proud to support the Severn Valley Railway because not only is it the most marvellous heritage attraction, but it also makes a significant contribution to our regional economy.”
Many thanks to the tireless members of the organising committee: Jenny Cheshire, Phil Dutton, Julie Woodhouse, John Leftwich, Steve Pitts and Max Edwards. And grateful thanks to our generous sponsors: MFG Solicitors and Allelys Heavy Haulage.
