Thank you for your donations

Firstly a thank-you to those of you who have already donated towards the cost of the new frames and cylinders, especially for the donations of over £50 (plus gift aid!) a great boost to then coffers!   If you would like to join the others who have donated to the restoration of the loco there are various ways to donate listed below.  

Our sales and information stands will be out and about at the Bluebell and elsewhere during the next few months and here we will have quality merchandise as well as our pickles and preserves on sale.  the list of venues can be found on our previous post.

If you are able it would be good to hear from you and we would be grateful for any donations you are able to make, every penny counts towards the restoration costs. Every penny spent on the loco needs to come from our own efforts.

We have a BT my donate page and this can be found at:

We can also accept cheques for any value either with or without a gift aid declaration.  If you would like a gift aid declaration form please contact us at the address below and it can be sent to you. If you are not able to allow us to claim back the Gift Aid, please contact us and we will let you know the best way to donate.
For those of you in the modern age, we also have a text donation page for donations as shown below.
To donate £10 text "FENC72 £10" to 70070
    - you can donate £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10 just by changing the amount in the text massage.
    - you can also elect to Gift Aid your donation;
    - your operator's standard text charge applies.
Thank you for your continued support and interest in the project, hopefully you will see the fruits of everyone’s labours in around 4 years or so.
