The ‘Rails of Hope’ thing is growing faster than I ever dreamed, already I have sent off parcels to sufferers of Cerebral Palsy and a person with MS and another with skin cancer and a Boy in Exeter who suffers very bad bouts of depression and a young boy who has spent over two thirds of his young life in Hospital but loves model trains. But the incoming stuff is beyond belief; one Guy has promised three brand new Hornby Railroad Loco’s 1) Flying Scotsman 2) Mallard 3) Cock of the North; totally amazing; another Guy is donating three sets of HST Power Cars (6 Vehicles in all) and a whole series of Hornby Pullman Cars; some with working table lamps. I want to lock myself in a room and keep them all to myself ! Alas that’s not the idea. People have been so kind by donating Cash; from large amounts to an older Lady in Devon who sent me a book of Stamps ! ‘How wonderful is that’?.
I am reminded of the old English saying; ‘From Little Acorns’.
Very, Very Heartfelt Thanks to everybody who has made a donation. Its people like you that have made this work.
