2022 Fundraising appeal
We are currently seeking to raise £16,000 to commission a technical report from a specialist consultancy with expertise in transport and sustainability matters.
The report will focus on demonstrating the need for an Edinburgh-Borders-Carlisle through route including the expansion of both passenger and freight capability to benefit local communities and support carbon reduction targets. It would also address questions such as route options, key engineering issues, station locations and budget costs.
The report will provide a major boost to the profile and standing of the Campaign and will give us robust, independent information with which to constructively review and support the official feasibility study.
Donations can also be made by cheque. Please make cheques payable to ‘Campaign for Borders Rail’ and send to: Campaign for Borders Rail, at Future Hawick, 2 Kirkwynd, Hawick, TD9 0AL. Please quote ‘Appeal 2022’ in any correspondence and include your name, contact details and confirmation of your donation so that we can properly record your payment.
Should you wish to make a donation for a specific purpose other than the 2022 Appeal, please get in touch via the contact page.
CBR operates a donations policy to ensure transparency and avoid compromising the independent policy of the Campaign or bringing the organisation into disrepute. Every member working on behalf of the campaign does so without remuneration and indeed are expected to meet the majority of their personal expenses, in accordance with our expenses policy.
