WRA 250 CLUB
We are starting enrolments for the new 250 Club 2022-23 Season. Make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to win cash prizes while supporting the Railway. We are now taking applications for the 12 months starting on 1 November 2022.Each month during the last year we gave away prizes amounting to £290 and double this amount in December; this stacks up to £3770 in prizes over the year – half of all the income from our nearly 300 current subscribers. The other half of our income is spent on supporting our Railway with items it could not otherwise afford during these times of austerity. So far this year we have allocated a total of £2661 to a variety of items including protective clothing for the vegetation gang, two vintage style lights for Bedale Signal Box, an additional platform lamp for Scruton Station, a water heater and hand dryer for Bedale Signal Box, a post machine for the fencing gang, a dishwasher and fridge for the Tea Train, a fridge for the buffet at Leeming Bar, and a donation to the “Full Steam Ahead” Appeal for seats for the Mark 1 coaches.
We stand ready to help wherever possible. If you don’t yet belong, please consider ‘signing up’ as soon as possible. You can make a big difference by subscribing just £12 for the year for each number you buy to be included in the 12 monthly draws. With double the chance to win in December, that’s 13 for the price of 12! What’s more you can buy up to 10 numbers per year, increasing your chance of winning and helping the railway even more.You can download the application form by clicking on the link below. Or contact the Leeming Bar office. Please note that, if you already belong and you pay by standing order, there is no need for any action as you will be renewed automatically in October.
