No doubt many of you will have already responded to requests for help from other organisations experiencing financial problems during the current coronavirus pandemic. The recently-launched BLS ‘Covid Appeal Fund’ will help cover ongoing expenses and in particular our Learning & Engagement activities which have proved to be so beneficial to young people and the community as a whole.
You will find a Donation Form HERE. Please print off a copy, complete and forward it with your donation to Paul Ritchie, BLS Covid Appeal, 41 Beech Park, West Hill, Ottery St. Mary, Devon. EX11 1UG. Cheques should be made out to The Bahamas Locomotive Society or you many use Paypal.
All donations of £25 will entitle the donor to one entry (one per every £25 donated, e.g. £100 = 4 numbers) in a draw for a replica smokebox numberplate of 45596 which has been made for us by Procast of Cleckheaton. The draw will take place in early December 2020 by Nick Brodrick, Editor of Steam Railway.Your support will be much appreciated and will be of considerable help as we attempt to minimise the adverse effects of the virus on our work.
