Housebuilder support for heritage railway
07 December 2021
Heritage steam railway, the West Lancashire Light Railway Trust, has received a £1,000 boost from Persimmon Lancashire.
The regional team awarded the funding through the Community Champions scheme, which supports local good causes.
Diane Finch, sales director of Lancashire, said: “So many worthy charities, schools, sports clubs and organisations need funding to help local people. We are proud to be able to make two donations every month through the Community Champions scheme and would encourage more local groups to apply.”
West Lancashire Light Railway Trust welcomes around 10,000 passengers every year to its Hesketh Bank site. Persimmon’s funding will help towards improvements to the station facilities, including new toilets and disabled access.
Groups across Lancashire can bid for Community Champions funding by completing a simple online application form.
