Lappa Valley Steam Railway is delighted to be supporting Children’s Hospice South West in 2016.

CHSW provides a home from home environment with care and support for children with life limiting illnesses, their parents and siblings. Through its three hospices in St Austell, Barnstaple and Bristol, CHSW provides respite breaks, palliative care, emergency stays and end of life care.

Mary Murfin Community Fundraiser for CHSW said “We were absolutely delighted to hear that Lappa Valley Steam Railway wanted to support us through our special 25th Anniversary year. We are very much looking forward to the exciting plans ahead and I would like to thank everyone in advance for helping us to make the most of short and precious lives.”

Keith Southwell, Managing Director of Lappa Valley Railway, said: “We wanted to recognise a local children’s charity, LVR is a family attraction and felt only right to support an organisation that is supporting families through these extremely difficult times. We are looking forward to raising vital funds and awareness, and also offering families quality time with their children throughout 2016.”


LVR will be raising money for the charity throughout the year through special fundraising events and activities.
