WRA 250 CLUB
We Are Starting Enrolments for the new “250 Club 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 2021.
During this past year, for obvious reasons, volunteer teams have not all been active and requests for support have therefore not been as frequent as usual. Accordingly, we donated £2,000 to the Shopping List Appeal made by the Trust. Grants were made, however, to the Vegetation Team for PPE and a container for them to store their equipment at Bedale; we also helped the Bedale Station Group replace floor coverings in the shop at the station and helped the plc buy a pin calibration gauge for the Pacers and some maintenance tools.
Each month during this year we gave away prizes amounting to £305 and double this amount in December; this stacks up to £3965 in prizes over the year – half of all the income from our nearly 300 current subscribers. No doubt, as the railway restarts after the crisis, requests for financial support will resume and 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 in 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.
