MK1 SK Coach Restoration Appeal

The Association has been seeking to buy an additional Mark 1 coach for some time. This will give us the benefit of being able to withdraw a coach for overhaul in-house, saving us the cost of paying a maintainer, with the cost of transporting by road. In November 2020 we have been able to bid successfully for an SK (compartments like our BSKs, but for the whole coach length). This coach, while shabby with graffiti on the outside, is in very reasonable condition inside and structurally. The Board of Trustees, being mindful of the current lack of income as a result of the pandemic, could not sanction the purchase from existing funds. Therefore, we are seeking other funding.

May we ask for your donation and support please

We are asking for donations to an SK purchase & restoration fund.

Alternatively, you can make a donation by cheque to the ‘SK Fund’ payable to C&PRRA and post to: The Chairman, CPRRA, Station Road, Chinnor OX39 4ER. We are experiencing some postal delays at present so it is more efficient if you are able to donate online.

Thank you for your support and it is greatly appreciated
