Swanage Railway has been chosen for the next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund.

The funding round has just started and runs for 11 months until the 27 October 2018.

How it works

Every time members of the Co-op shop at the Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund.

Co-op Members in our local community will be able to choose our cause and give Swanage Railway their 1% from the 12 November.

The Co-op also gives the Swanage Railway and the other causes in our community an equal share of the money raised from sales of carrier bags.

The more they shop, the more the Co-op shares and the more the Swanage Railway benefits.

What is Swanage Railway going to do with the money?

Swanage Railway is using the money raised for a very specific community purpose that will benefit the local community and visitors to the town.

The money is to be used to refurbish and make accessible the public toilets at Swanage Station.

The toilets are now life expired and need completely rebuilding to make them fit for purpose.

We plan to carry out the works in the winter 2018 / 2019.
