The Royden Park Miniature Railways held charity days over the Bank Holiday Weekend, Sunday the 29th and Monday 30th August. Our two railway circuits were in operation giving rides in support of The Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology and St John’s Hospice in Wirral.

The event was held in memory of one of our members John ‘Jumbo’ Whitehouse, who sadly lost his battle with cancer earlier in the year. His nickname ‘Jumbo’ derived from a class of steam locomotive that ran on the LNWR and John had built and run a live steam working model on the Society’s track. John’s widow asked if the Society could hold a charity event in memory of John and members were pleased to arrange the weekend.

Thanks to the generosity of our visitors and the support of around thirty Society members, just over £1000 was raised to be shared by the charities.

We held two short presentation ceremonies at Royden Park.

On Monday 6th Sept the Chairman presented Jade Barrett from Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology with a cheque for £503.04

and on Sunday 12th September a cheque for £503.04 was presented to Jill from the St John’s Hospice fundraising team by George, brother of the late John ‘Jumbo’ Whitehouse.

All the photographs were taken at Royden Park by Mo Stephen, Bob Spencer and Steve Reece.
