Llandudno & Colwyn Bay Tramway Society launch 2022 Appeal

The Llandudno & Colwyn Bay Tramway Society – owners of replica Llandudno & Colwyn Bay Electric Railway 7 – have launched a new appeal for 2022 as they continue to try to cover their costs, with the past couple of years seeing a massive reduction in events to allow for normal fundraising.

The new appeal is being publicised as “Please Donate £7 a month for Tram no. 7 for at least 7 months” – and a generous supporter has offered to match every monthly £7 raised for the first seven months of 2022 so your donations will in fact be doubled!

And as a bonus anyone who donates 7 x £7 monthly payments before the Society AGM in September will be entered into a free draw for one year’s membership of the Society.

Like many other volunteer led organisations the Society has been hit by a fall in donations during the pandemic, especially with the majority of the visible events they usually attend being cancelled. Despite the fall in donations the Society still have significant outgoings with no. 7 requiring maintenance which meant it missed the one event which did take place in December 2021 leading to the use of a replacement bus instead!
