"Overwhelming" Public Support for Model Railway Club

Thousands of pounds worth of equipment was destroyed at Welland Academy in Stamford last weekend.

Market Deeping's Model Railway Club says they're in the very early stages of setting up a trust fund to manage the money raised after vandals trashed their displays.

The Chairman, Peter Davis, says it's going to take weeks to rebuild but is overwhelmed by the response to their crowd-funding campaign, which as of this morning has rasied over £88,000 -  including a £10,000 donation from Rod Stewart.

Peter says they're in the early stages of setting up a trust fund to manage the money, which they hope to use to to support other model railway clubs.
