Gwili Railway Preservation Society
Help raise funds
Do you hold a special affection for the Gwili Railway?
Join the GRPS and find out how you can fundraise to help us develop and preserve this wonderful heritage railway for future generations.
Fundraising is a very important part of the Society's activities. The backbone is our membership fee income, which is traditionally kept at a level sufficient to meet the printing and distribution costs of "Gwili Messenger", the Society's in-house magazine. This means that all other income goes directly to the benefit of projects on the Railway.
For example, recent GRPS Raffles have supported a variety of different projects, which include the development of catering outlets, the resurfacing of platforms, and even the provision of toilet facilities at our Llwyfan Cerrig station. We also hold at least one sponsored walk each year; often these are held on our own eight-mile trackbed.

Did you know that
you can raise funds for the GRPS without leaving
your armchair? Every time you order goods online, you
can ensure that a donation is made to the Gwili Railway by
placing your order through www.easyfundraising.org. If you
are not sure how this is achieved, log on to easyfundraising.org.uk and
click on to their "How it Works" section. Once you have
registered you name and password, it's easy. Just make sure
Gwili Railway is your chosen beneficiary!
You could also help the GRPS by remembering us in your will. Whilst not a subject most of us like to talk about, we should all make a will at some point in our lives. So if you are thinking of making a will, or changing your existing will, please remember the Gwili Railway. It would be nice to think that some small part of you remains with the Railway after you have gone. Any legacies received are always used in an appropriate manner, such as for the extension of the track. If you do chose to leave the Gwili Railway Preservation Society a sum in your will, rest assured it will not be wasted. Should you wish to leave a sum to the GRPS, the relevant details that your Solicitor may require are: wThe Treasurer, Gwili Railway Preservation Society, c/o Bronwydd Arms Station, Bronwydd, Carmarthen, SA33 6HT.
Sale of memorabilia and the Wishing Well
The GRPS has a number of other income streams, including the sale of guide books, second-hand books, and other memorabilia. We even have a wishing well which is emptied regularly (not our Treasurer's favourite job!). If you have memorabilia or books you would like to donate please phone the office 01267 238213.
We are also grateful to receive donations, however small, as these are always put to good use. Donations can be given in person in the shop or sent to the GRPS, c/o Bronwydd Arms Station, Bronwydd, Carmarthen, SA33 6HT.
