NEW: Model Railway Project! Can you help?

Posted on the 14th January 2021

All aboard! We are launching an exciting new model railway project for clients with a disability or autism.

They will be involved in all aspects of design and build, including track layout and the creation of landscape features and buildings. This will improve logistic and construction skills and enhance creativity.  It’s also going to be great fun!

Unfortunately model railway kit is expensive. To build up a head of steam we are appealing for donations of pre-loved 00 gauge model railway items. Can you help?

Model Railway Appeal

Perhaps you or someone  you know is a model railway enthusiast with a  few items to spare? Or has your collection outgrown  your home? Maybe  your son or daughter had a set but defected to Warhammer! Whatever the reason we would love to receive anything you can offer.

It might be a few pieces of 00 gauge track,  a locomotive, other rolling stock, modelling materials or figures. All donations are welcome.

The Station House

Our model railway project is based at “The Station House,” our dedicated space within The Falcon Business Centre in Chadderton. However access is not straightforward, so please do not take your donations here.

How to Donate

Donations of any 00 gauge model railway items can instead be dropped off at The Boathouse Cafe in Alexandra Park, Oldham or The Jonathan Burns Centre in Middleton. Drop off points can also be arranged in Stockport.

In most cases in Oldham, Rochdale and Stockport, we can also arrange to collect.

Please contact Kath Brooks by email at   07872423212 for more information.

We really do appreciate your support in creating this fulfilling new activity for Pure clients. Thank you!
