Nearly 200 come together for an afternoon of steam train fun for Smudger

Almost 200 people came together for an afternoon of steam trains, treats and family fun at Brighouse’s Ravensprings Park on Saturday (4 May).

The event was hosted by The Nick Smith Foundation to raise money for the charity set up in memory of 38-year old Nick ‘Smudger’ Smith, who died from Motor Neurone Disease in December 2017.

Nick and his son Hadyn, now aged six, regularly attended the monthly open days and loved riding on the miniature steam trains of the Brighouse and Halifax Model Engineers.

The event was supported by volunteers from Barclays and the Fixby and Brighouse Women’s Institute who baked a selection of amazing cakes and biscuits which were sold to raise money in support of the charity’s aims.
