Publicising an Appeal on behalf of York Normandy Veterans’ Play. Derwent Valley Light Railway Society is proud and delighted that once a year, York Normandy Veterans accept its invitation to  play host to them, with a ride on the train followed by a buffet lunch. Last year, the event was on Father's Day 2016, On that occasion, Ruston Hornsby 88DS, Rowntree No3, was named Ken Cooke, after one of the Veterans who is an ex employee of Rowntree's and all the veterans were given honorary membership of the DVLR Society. The story is to be found on the “Reports from 2016” page. A play has been written about the Veterans life changing experiences of those days during the invasion of Normandy using the memories of the York veterans.  It's hoped to take this play on the road, so a Justgiving page has been opened to raise funds to get the show to play out to the wider public, something which this Society wholeheartedly supports. Are you able to help? Any amount of donation would be appreciated. (The picture was taken during the June 2016 visit.)
