FUND RAISING

28atsau

 The third general overhaul of 35028 Clan Line was completed in the latter part of 2006. The clock is now ticking onwards to the next!

 The last overhaul was estimated to cost 200,000 and this was exceeded by a very large amount.

 Although the locomotive is earning revenue while running on the main lines, it is sensible and prudent for us to make sure that funds continue to  be replenished, to accrue funds for the next overhaul and also to cover any major work that may become necessary as a result of “wear and tear”.

 Quite  apart from the cost of the overhaul, and being sure that there is the  finance to keep our Locomotive back on the main line, it also costs  us money just to stand still. Rent,  insurance and general overheads still  have to be met, whether Clan Line runs or not.

 All  donations, whether large or small, are therefore very welcome and will  be a great help  during this expensive period. Here are some ways that  YOU can help:

     

  • Why not make a donation to the general "Overhaul Fund"  or to the "Mercator Fund" by sending a cheque made payable  to the MNLPS LTD, to me at the address  below. N.B. Cheques drawn on  UK BANKS Sterling Accounts only, or by International Money Orders  drawn in Sterling. For donations in other currencies please  first contact the Fund Raising Officer.
  •  

  • How  about making a regular monthly donation through your UK Bank, by  sending me a completed Standing Order Mandate - click below to down  load one.  Everyone who signs to donate at least 10 per month  will receive one year's free "ordinary membership" of the  MNLPS - for details of membership benefits see the Membership Page.
  •  

  • Gift  Aid New UK tax rules make a significant difference to our fund raising  efforts. This is because as a Charity we can claim back the tax that  you have already paid on  the donations that you make to us. If you currently  pay UK Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax and wish the MNLPS to benefit  from these rules please complete a Gift Aid Form - click below to download  one.

     
  • PayPal The MNLPS now has facilities for you to make donations via PayPal, either via your personal PayPal Account or by using your credit or debit card accounts. If you wish to use this facility please click the Donate Button below. No account information is passed to the MNLPS

 

During  her time on the main line, Clan Line has gained a tremendous reputation,  please  help the MNLPS to make sure that this continues by making a donation  today.

Please  send cheque donations made payable to MNLPS LTD, or your completed standing order mandate (see notes above re donations from our overseas  supporters) to:
