Remember the East Somerset Railway in your Will

For the East Somerset Railway, like many charities, a legacy provides more substantial funding and a way of helping to remember the life of someone who supported the East Somerset Railway, or just had a love of Steam. Leaving a legacy is a great way of donating a larger sum to a cause which is close to your heart, something which is not always possible to do in your lifetime. We are extremely grateful for every legacy or gift we receive and do our utmost to honour any wishes that are made.
