Please help the Midland Railway!

We’re launching an appeal to raise money to finish the Swanwick station building at the festival site.

We’re amazed and really grateful that the Midland Railway makes it possible for an indiepop festival to take place on their steam railway each year. It’s a beautiful, perfect location for our festival and the railway staff and volunteers have always been incredibly welcoming, friendly and supportive.

As you can imagine, it takes a lot to keep the railway going each year, so we’d like to try and help out. We asked the charity how we might help and they said they’d love some help in raising money to finish their Swanwick station building (pictured above).

They’ve been building the station gradually since 2007 and while it’s nearly complete they need a bit more money to finish the internal and external building and furnishing.

If you’d like to contribute something, please visit www.charitygiving.co.uk/indietracks2010 by Friday¬†10 September.

Thanks so much, and hopefully see you next year!
