Gift Aid Appeal

Monday, 17th June, 2019

80097 has now completed a total of 60 steamings on The East Lancashire Railway.

She is proving her worth by being very reliable and popular with footplate crews and travelling public.

There are still a number of issues to overcome though, but as we gain even more experience with the engine these will all be ironed out.

We still need to plan for the future though, ongoing maintenance costs, insurance etc. will all need to be paid for.

The shop team are doing a fantastic job in raising funds but we can all help out and every little helps.

If you are kind enough to make a donation, please consider calling into our shop and fill out an "East Lancashire Railway 80097 Boiler Appeal" gift aid form.

The ELR can then claim an extra 25% Tax Relief and deduct it all from the £120000.00 loan we took out with the ELR to have the boiler of 80097 restored, all very painless and it doesn’t cost you a penny on top of your donation.
