Fundraising exercises

The Treasurer (who else) has initiated two fundraising exercises for the Society and we need your help to raise the funds required to fully restore our Kitson locomotive:

       Easyfunding - This method of fundraising rewards the Society for online purchases at any one of several thousand online retailers. There is NO CHARGE to any of the subscribers.

       47 Club quarterly prize draw.



Following a larger than expected quote for the restoration of the boiler on the Kitson, the Society has signed up with Easyfunding to raise further funds. There over 7,000 companies who will pay a percentage of whatever you spend with them.

It's easy to sign up and doesn't cost you anything!

The Hon Treasurer has already used it to raise money through Booking.com, Compare the Market and Sainsbury's.

Give it a try, and let's get the Kitson back in steam!

How to join: Click the link below and open in a new tab:


Once you are on the Worcester Locomotive Society Kitson Restoration screen.

Click the yellow box "Sign up and support this cause"

You are now asked to create an account.

Follow the simple steps to set up your account, and you'll be able to shop online at lots of stores while they donate a percentage of the amount you spend to the Kitson Easyfundraising fund.

Payments received to November 2023


For information on how successful this can be we understand that the Talyllyn Railway raised 30,000 using Easyfunding.
