Donations

The museum is a registered charity and does not receive government or public funding to help us to run the museum. To date most of the work has been carried out and funded by the volunteers and Friends of the museum. For their help and generosity we are very grateful. It is however, difficult for us to continue to fund everything we are trying to do and to cover the cost of recovering, removing and transporting engines when they are offered to us.

 

If you would like to make a donation to help us with the projects we have planned then you can do so by donating using the link below. Thank you.
