Restoring Caledonia

£1,597 of £25,000 goal

Raised by 18 people in 9 months
Created May 22, 2018
Hollycombe Steam in the Country is a collection of national importance and we fund our activities through the museum. For those of you who have been a part of Hollycombe whether through volunteering or by visiting you have helped to support the museum over the years. However sometimes we need to ask for help financially in order to be able to achieve the restoration of some of our collection which otherwise might be beyond our means. 

We are looking to raise funds to restore Caledonia so that we can see her running once again on our Quarry Railway. Caledonia is the first locomotive to haul passengers on our narrow gauge railway and holds a special place for lots of people and seeing her run again will be a sight to behold.  Anything you can give no matter how small will help us to pay for all of the works to get Caledonia into service again. She hasn't been runnning since 2007 due to requiring some significant works and works on other parts of the collection has meant that Caledonia has been side lined for some time. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for any help you are able to give.

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
