We are now in a position to make real change


The Lichfield Waterworks Trust has made significant progress in it endeavours to save Sandfields pumping Station. The volunteers have made the building and the unique Cornish beam engine look better than it has done for years.

We are now in a position to make real change:

Change that will preserve this unique heritage asset, and make it both accessible and beneficial to everyone.

Change that will make a difference to the community, and bring about a significant positive social benefit.

Change that will make us as an even better organisation so we can deliver and manage our objectives effectively and efficiently. 

We are about to commission a viability study to help us take the first steps towards community ownership of this heritage asset. The viability study underpins the options appraisal and help us build a firm foundation to take the project forward.

The viability study will cost us £10,000 to complete, some of the money coming from grants, the rest we will have to raise ourselves. As we do not charge for membership, and income is entirely by voluntary contribution, therefore we would like to ask our members and supporter if they could chip in £10 as a one-off donation.

You can donate by following this link to our Virgin Money Giving website. If you are a UK tax payer, then please consider Gift Aiding your donation too.
