Recently the Amman Valley Railway Society rescued a vintage Swansea tram from the Brecon Beacons National Park, and our aim is to restore this 135-year-old historic gem to its former glory for the benefit of generations to come.
However, we’re a small charity with insufficient resources to finance the restoration ourselves.
Consequently we’re launching a crowd funding website with Indiegogo to help raise the money we need.
The site will go live this coming Thursday October 8th, and I’m appealing to you for your support on that day. According to Indiegogo, the more we can raise on day one, the more likely we are to meet our target of £28,000.
And every donation will help, no matter how small.
find out more about our charity at http://www.avrsonline.co.uk, and more about our appeal at http://www.swanseatrams.cymru.
The money we raise from this appeal will be spent on the tools and materials we need to carry out initial restoration work on the tram.
Please help us by spreading the word about our campaign via FaceBook, Twitter and and any other social media networks you use.
I’m looking forward to your support,
