Since 1991 the Diamond Valley Railway, a 100% volunteer run not for profit organisation, has provided financial donations to local Not for Profit Community Groups as part of our commitment to supporting our local community.

In that time we have donated $235,000 to a variety of groups and we look forward to continuing providing this support in 2018.

Each year we donate $20,000 in total to various well deserving local groups.

This year (2018) the following organisations will receive donations for the specified amounts:

  • Community and Volunteers Eltham - $3000
  • Diamond Valley Learning Centre - $3000
  • Wattle Glen CFA - $3000
  • Nillumbik SES - $3000
  • Kalparrin Early Intervention Service - $3000
  • Eltham Mens Shed - $2000
  • Sensitive Santa - $1000
  • Hearts in Mind - $1000
  • University of the 3rd Age - $1000

We will also make a special one off donation of $2000 to the Eltham and District Community Bank Branch’s appeal to raise funds for the rebuilding of the Eltham North Adventure Playground that was destroyed by fire in late 2017.

Presentation of the donations will occur at 10:30am at the main station at the Diamond Valley Railway on Sunday 10th March 2019 as part of our 2019 12 Hour Community Run.
