Gifts in Wills and the Guardians' Club

Gifts in Wills are a vital source of income for the Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust. Each one makes a huge difference to the development of the Railway.

The SVR Guardians' Club celebrates the commitment from all those who have indicated they will be leaving a gift in their Will to the SVR Charitable Trust. Once you've notified us of your intentions we will send you a Guardian's lapel pin badge and updates on how we're helping the Railway. As Guardian, you'll join a group of individuals who are generously securing the Railway's future by acting now.

Our Guardians' Club leaflet is available by clicking the image to the right, or from 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 makes a Will, but without one that's up-to-date, 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's also a chance for you to leave behind a very special gift to help the causes closest to your heart, something which is may not have been possible to do during your lifetime.

Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the ways you can support the Severn Valley Railway, even if right now you're not able to donate. Your legacy, of whatever size, will help us to continue to support the work of the pioneers who rescued and preserved the Railway back in 1965.

If you have already included the Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust in your Will, it would help us if you let us know as this allows us to plan ahead as a charity. If you have already specified a legacy to the Railway, perhaps to the old SVR Rolling Stock Trust, could you please ensure that your Will now clearly states "The Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust Ltd, Charity No. 1092723", as this will ensure that the funds reach your intended beneficiary quickly.

We treat any information you provide with absolute discretion and you can tell us as much or as little as you wish. We would be pleased to advise you on what steps to take to make or amend your Will, and we always recommend using a solicitor or professional Will write. Our legacy brochure contains plenty of helpful information; just click on the image to the right to read this online, or you can download the legacy brochure.

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
