B473 with Victorian carriages - Steve Lee - 8 November 2014 13 November
The Cash for Cover Appeal has reached an amazing 350,000 in just a month, enough to put up a roof capable of covering twenty vintage carriages. The incredible response has delighted not just myself, but also Society Chairman Roy Watts, Company Chairman Dick Fearn and C&W Director Lewis Nodes, who all wish to thank everyone who has contributed. The generosity of the 1,300 donors has been beyond all expectations.

This is a tremendous start to Operation Undercover 4, which is of course more than just a roof. A lot more than the current target is required for doors, walls, storage space etc., so this Appeal will remain in being in one form or another a while.

The message is, if you wish to support the project, please don't stop now the first target has been reached. A few people have started Standing Orders and many more would be welcome. Only the first year of standing order has been included in the reported sum raised, as we can only spend what we have in the bank or can expect in the next few months. A standing order form can be downloaded here. Donations can still be made online with Just Giving or by PayPal. The latter do not charge for administration, and the credit card fees are covered by PayPal themselves, so is the preferred method, but it easy to forget to complete the Gift Aid section, which comes after the donation has been made, so make sure you do if you wish us to claim back the tax you have paid.

The OU4 Project Steering Group meet on the 25 November to plan the work for 2015,so that is the next deadline for making donations. The Steering Group will make their plans on the sum raised to that date or promised for the immediate future.

Thank you again to all who have made donations or plan to do so
