Glenbrook Vintage Railway COVID-19 Crisis Appeal
The Glenbrook Vintage Railway desperately needs your help to survive, donate now and save our iconic railway for future generations!Nationwide
The Glenbrook Vintage Railway is in crisis.
We are facing the most challenging and desperate times in our history. COVID-19 has forced our railway to close its doors, causing us to lose all income and threatening the future of essential staff who enable our volunteers and operation.
GVR was saved and rebuilt to serve the people and recreate history. Over the past 50 years we’ve brought joy and excitement to over 1.5 million people, and we have continued growing and expanding to contributing over $1 million to the New Zealand economy last year alone.
Mass gathering and border restrictions mean that GVR's critical events and overseas tourist charter income may not return for a long time. As a registered charity, GVR relies on this income to cover our essential maintenance and core operating expenses.
With the challenge we are now facing, we need your support more than ever.
Please donate now and save our iconic railway for future generations!
The Glenbrook Vintage Railway (established 1970) runs heritage steam and diesel trains and family friendly events both on the Glenbrook Vintage Railway and around the national rail network.
Use of funds
Every dollar will go towards covering GVR’s essential maintenance and core operating expenses (including materials, day-to-day bills, and staff related costs), which we would usually cover from ticket income.
