People travelling on the popular Dinosaur Train this summer will now be able to give an optional donation to the charity when booking tickets online.

Seaton Tramway has teamed up with the Jurassic Coast Trust to support the World Heritage Site.

People travelling on the popular Dinosaur Train this summer will now be able to give an optional donation to the charity when booking tickets online.

Donations will help the Trust to look after the Jurassic Coast, supporting conservation and education projects along the 95 miles of coastline.

The Dinosaur Train runs every Sunday during the summer holidays and includes a goody bag and Nature Tracker’s Guidebook for every child.

Seaton Tramway chief executive, Jenny Nunn, believes it’s extremely important to invest in the area.

“We are proud to become a business partner of the Jurassic Coast Trust and we are really looking forward to working hand in hand with them,” she said.

“Our Dinosaur Train activity is a perfect match for the Trust’s vital work to ensure the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site is cared for and valued by everyone who visits it. In addition to passengers learning more about our incredible history and the stories the Jurassic Coast tells us, they can now help by contributing towards safeguarding it, both now and for the future.”

The money raised will go towards the wide range of activities and projects supported by the Jurassic Coast Trust, including training teachers in how to use the coast to inspire pupils, conservation activities and recruiting local volunteers to act as ambassadors on behalf of the World Heritage Site.
