Welcome to the SVR Rolling Stock Trust Website

Our Guardian's Club

Legacies are a vital source of income for the Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust. Each gift made in a Will makes a huge difference to the development of the Railway.

The SVR Guardian's Club is a special club in celebration of the commitment from all those who have indicated they will be leaving a gift in their Will to the SVR Charitable Trust. After notifiying us of your legacy we will send you a member's lapel pin badge and updates on the work to the Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust. You will join a generous group of individuals who are securing the Railway's future by acting now.

Our Guardian's Club leaflet is available from the right-hand image or in our Downloads section.

Your Legacy matters

Making a Will is your only guarantee that the content of your estate will go to the people and causes that you care about. Astonishingly, only one in three people make a Will, but without an up to date Will, there is a risk that your estate will not go where you intend and could even end up going to the Government!

Your Will ensures your loved ones are taken care of and can help prevent more anguish for them at a difficult time. It is also a chance for you to leave behind a very special gift to help the causes closest to your heart, something which is not always possible to do in your lifetime.

Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the ways you can support the Railway even if you are unable to donate at this time. Your legacy, however large or small, will help us to continue to support the work of the forefathers who rescued and preserved the Railway back in 1965.

If you have already included the Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust in your Will, it is helpful to let us know as this allows us to plan ahead as a charity. If you have left a legacy to the railway, perhaps to the SVR Rolling Stock Trust, could you please ensure that your will clearly states “The Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust Ltd Charity No. 1092723.” This will ensure that the funds reach your intended beneficiary quickly.

All information is treated with utmost discretion and you can tell us as much or as little as you wish. We would be pleased to advise you on how to make or amend your Will and to provide you with our latest brochure should you wish to consider helping us in this way.

Legacies are a vital source of income for the Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust. Each gift in a Will makes a huge difference to the work we do. Please consider supporting the Railway in this way. To find out more about leaving a legacy please call 01562 757940 or email fundraising@svrtrust.org.uk
