Stair Lift Appeal

Disabled members and visitors are restricted from fully enjoying the facilities and activities at Keen House, with stairs leading to most rooms.

To rectify the situation we are planning to install a stair lift from the foyer up to the John Anning Hall, then a second one from there up to the Library and Toilets. The Toilets will be modified for disabled use and a wider door installed to allow for wheelchair access.

This all costs money. We need to raise £15,000 for this project. Every donation, large or small, will help.

By launching this appeal we hope MRC members, friends and users of Keen House, and the wider modelling fraternity, will respond with donations allowing an early start to these much needed improvements.

If you would like to donate, please send a cheque to the Treasurer at Keen House (marked on the back 'Stair Lifts'). Alternatively you can pay electronically to the Model Railway Club, sort code 30-94-57, account 00789468, at Lloyds Bank, with 'Stair Lifts' in the comment box.
