Thank you to all our customers and business associates who joined us for a special evening of celebration.

The celebration event saw us board the ‘Leicester City’ Steam Train at the Great Central Railway, the UK’s only double track mainline heritage railway. The exclusive Pullman fleet compromising of carriages from the golden age of steam have been restored to the utmost authenticity. The heritage line journeyed from Loughborough passing though the beautiful Charnwood Forest; pausing on the viaduct over the Swithland Reservoir before continuing on to Rothley and Leicester North.

A thoroughly wonderfully evening was had by all, thank you to everyone who travelled from throughout the country to join us and for the generosity in supporting us with the Santa Special Steam Train trips for PASIC and for the Mind charity where a total of £950 was raised!
