Director Anthony Joseph Wiaczek will be walking from his front door of The Roggerham Gate Inn pub in Burnley, to the top of Pendle Hill and back. A total of 30km for his 30th birthday. But not only that, he's doing it IN A KILT

His challenge will take place on 18th June and any sponsorships would be greatly recieved via the gofundme link below. All donations will be split evenly between the two charities and we would be so greatful if you would consider a donation, no matter how small.

Good luck Anthony!

Ben Alder Project 

2021 will see the project reach its second anniversary, and like many heritage projects Covid 19 has had an effect on all our activities. The opportunities to raise awareness, and much needed funds have not been available to us. Last year we also lost 2 important individuals, who have been offering our team support and knowledge during the initial phases of the project. 


These losses have not held the project back, and in 2020 we produced our first Drawings, patterns and components; last year has also offered us a unique opportunity to cast the front Bogie wheels. Our wheel appeal will allow us to acquire the first major items for Ben Alder; while we are continuing to progress the Bogie drawings to enable us proceed with the Bogie build as the funds become available, as well as smaller components.


We hope you will take time to view this website and consider supporting the project.
