Walkers help to raise thousands for railway
Those who took part in Walk the Line managed to raise almost £15,000 for the Watercress Line
MORE than 950 people of all ages braved the weather to Walk the Line last Saturday morning, raising a whopping £14,750 for the Mid Hants Railway Watercress Line.
Organiser David Brace said: “Walk The Line is a fantastic opportunity for all the family to see the Watercress Line from a different view and play an important part in securing the future of Hampshire’s heritage railway.
“On behalf of all of the staff and volunteers at the Watercress Line, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in this year’s annual walk.”
The money raised from the sponsored walk will be used to re-ballast a section of 1,000 yards of track at Wanders Curve between Medstead and Four Marks and Ropley and, subsequently, maintain the trackbed that families were walking along.
