Walhalla Goldfields railway received a heart felt thanks from Lynn from Nature Needs More, for raising $740 to support tackling the trade in endangered species. “In doing so, the Walhalla Goldfields Railway team has pioneered the Train, Boats and Automobiles theme in supporting our annual global afternoon tea for wildlife!”
A special thanks was received for Phil Milbourne, President of the Walhalla Goldfields Railway and David Coy the chef on the day, Station Master Dan Beavis and WGR committee members and volunteers Lynda, Jenny, Sharon, Marilyn for taking care of the guests who came along to the Walhalla Goldfields Railway Devonshire Tea For Wildlife; and finally a big thank you to Walhalla local and passionate wildlife warrior Geraldine Coy.
“We particularly appreciate this effort, as we know that in regional towns around Australia, and the world, so much of what the town needs is done by volunteers. The historic railway itself is run by volunteers and funds are always need for the restorations. Similarly, these small towns raise funds for their firefighters, schools, sports clubs and cultural events.
So, we are humbled and thankful that in the midst of all these efforts this group has shown such selflessness and a demonstrated such compassion for the world’s precious wildlife; helping our work to ensure that they are around for future generations.”
