    I met a couple of people in Scotland this week who had only just sent off their application so there is a good chance the last minute rush will get to the target

    I see from Twitter that £2.3 million has now been passed. Let's hope for a good final day! I am very impressed by the push made over the last month or so.

    The Share Offer has smashed £2.33 million (12.15 p.m.) and it's your last chance to help us reach £2.5 million.
    Shares may be purchased in person tomorrow (Tuesday 31st) between 9am and 4.30pm at our Head Office in Comberton Place, Kidderminster; payment by cheque, cash or card as you wish! We'll hopefully see you there.
    Remember, all applications must be received by our registrars by post or hand by tomorrow at the latest.

    Phew! I was beginning to worry that it might merely have 'reached' it - which would, of course, would have been awful... :Troll:

    A phenomenal effort - I really doubted a couple of months ago as to whether this would be achieved or not but the achievement of the last few weeks has been quite something.

    Really looking forward to what Bridgnorth will look like in 5 years' time!

    Where next? Bewdley?

    Fantastic news from the SVR. Well done to them !! <BJ>

    Help secure our unique heritage for future generations.

    UPDATE: We did it!

    We’ve now raised £2.5 million. Thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way. We are truly humbled. Our Bridgnorth dream is set to become reality!

    Unfortunately, our Bridgnorth Share Offer is now closed.We launched our Share Offer last November to help fund transformative works at Bridgnorth Station. Proceeds will support ambitious plans to deliver much-improved visitor facilities whilst at the same time conserving and enhancing the line's main destination station.

    View the planning documents

    We are truly humbled by the generosity that our supporters have shown over the past 12 months. Over the next few days, we will be calculating the final figure achieved by our Share Offer, but we are confident we have reached £2.5 million with your help. Thank you to everyone who has purchased...our Bridgnorth dream is set to become a reality!

    If you'd still like to donate to the project, you can do so through our Charitable Trust, and if you are a taxpayer, we may be able to apply for a further 25% Gift Aid, on your behalf, at no extra cost to you, making this a very efficient way of giving to the project.

    £2,520,300 plus a few applications to process so it is likely that this figure will increase in the coming days.
    In addition to the above, the Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust has raised a further £60k

    http://www.svrlive.com/share-issue-2016

    You can still support this ground-breaking project by donating to the Bridgnorth Development fund via the Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust. If you are a taxpayer the Trust can usually claim a further 25% Gift Aid on your donation at no extra cost to you. Please visit http://svrtrust.org.uk/our-projects/bridgnorth-development-project.html for to download a Bridgnorth donation form, or to make an online donation. If you would like any further information, please contact us on 01562 757940 or email fundraising@svrtrust.org.uk.
