    Story

    Market Deeping Model Railway Club needs your help to rebuild. We have held our annual show in Stamford for the last 12 years. Months of planning goes into the show and years of work goes into building the layout. Imagine our horror and grief when we were greeted by this scene of absolute devastation on the morning of 18th May 2019.

    Some of the models on display are irreplaceable and whilst money cannot possibly replace the hours of painstaking effort that has been so wantonly destroyed, we would ask that you make a donation, no matter how small, to help us get back on our feet. Please accept our thanks in advance.

    We originally hoped for £500 to fund some of our rebuilding costs. The response has been out of this world and overwhelming. We are truly grateful for everything that has been donated both money and gifts. We weren't the only ones to suffer and our thoughts are turning to those others affected.

      We are so immensely grateful to everyone who has donated, Sir Rod Stewart has been especially generous. Thank you Sir Rod! All your donations will help us and others, so hurt and damaged by the destruction, to start to rebuild. It is very early days but we will now also be able to start thinking about what projects we might be able to undertake and how we can help others.

      As a fellow railway modeller I can understand how heartbreaking this must be. Hope this helps in some way.
