Lymm Historic Transport Day is proud to have donated over £46,500 to worthwhile local and national causes over the last decade!
In 2023 we gave £8,500 to charities, the details of which you can see below. Many of these organisations provided us with volunteers on the day. If you would like to be a beneficiary of our next event, please get in touch with us here to find out how you can help us with volunteers on the day.
Our long running partner and principle beneficiary is the Lymm Heritage Centre, to whom we donated £3,000 to help with their ongoing maintenance costs.
We gave £900 to Lymm Rugby Club who provided us with several volunteers on the day and with access to their facilities. Lymm Rugby Club is a charitable club that offers healthy recreation to the whole community with an increasing variety of sports on offer.
We donated £700 to Lymm Air Cadets, another organisation who assisted with volunteers on the day, to fund new equipment that will help them in the training they can offer young people.
Lymm Swimming Club is a voluntary society that has been teaching local kids to swim for 50 years. We gave them £600 to fund a Transport Day bursary, paying for a young person to receive a professional swimming teacher qualification, enabling them to volunteer as an instructor at the club.
Warrington Community Transport (Dial-a-Ride) has been run by volunteers for the last 35 years, providing free rides to the elderly and disabled. They deliver over 300 journeys every week around Warrington. Lymm Historic Transport Day has given this fantastic organisation £600 towards a new vehicle.
We've donated £550 to St Rocco's Hospice, which does sterling work for the local community.
Other charities we've donated to this year include Lymm High PTA, Ravenbank PTA, Oughtrington Luncheon Club, the Cheshire Blood Bikes, the Wooden Canal Boat Society, Bikeability, Lancashire Mining Museum at Astley Green and the Warrington Disability Partnership.
