In 2015 it became necessary to refocus the David Suchet Appeal in order to raise around £1million towards a new tunnel under the Lichfield to Birmingham 'Cross-city' railway line.
Otherwise 25 years of successful restoration could be “stopped in it's tracks” and placed beyond reach.
In 2017 at the London Boat Show the Tunnel Vision Appeal was formally launched by David Suchet, now with a firm target date of early 2019. By this time £150,000 had already been raised.
A donation of £20 to The Brick Appeal pays for a square metre of bricks to help with restoration of locks and other features. Donations of £20 or more will receive a miniature presentation brick.
Following the success of the first David Suchet Appeal a number of donors said they would like to continue paying a regular amount to assist the Trust in continuing to go from strength to strength.
The Regular Giving Scheme was launched in November 2003. Supporters can choose whether to make a donation to the Land Fund or the general Restoration Fund.
