This is, of course, no small task. Many components need replacing, from the comforts, such as toilets (now done I believe) and seats (a lot of work left to do), to the more important parts such as step boards and brake hoses. It's taken over a year's work to get the electrics alive again. You can follow the group's progress at: http://setg.org.uk/news/

I am not involved in this project sadly, however I work with people who do, anything you can give, be it a pint's worth or a much more substantial amount, would be greatly appreciated by all.

Let's work together to get this beauty out again!
I would love to see this happen and to get this EMU back where it belongs on the 750V DC juice again, therefore I've just made my (sadly rather modest) contribution.

There is a note on the Just Giving page that if a donation is made via The Bluebell they may be able to claim gift aid=+25%
I will give them a ring to check it out

Out of curiosity, why do so many charities still register with JustGiving when MyDonate does exactly the same thing except that it doesn't charge them for the privilege?
