Whereas most of our donations come from members of SNGLT, we are
very grateful to those non-members that are interested enough in our project to
contribute - and are always pleased to accept more ;-)
|Buy some of the engine!
With the next overhaul now under way you have
the chance to buy a part (or two) of the engine!
Full details on here.
As a supporter of Sir Nigel Gresley have you considered leaving the
Society a legacy? Legacies can make a very important contribution to our
fundraising. Recent legislation has increased the tax benefits of leaving money
to charities. Any gifts you make to a 'qualifying' charity such as The
Sir Nigel Gresley Locomotive Trust Ltd. - during your lifetime or in your will
- will be exempt from Inheritance Tax. A donation to charity in your will may
also reduce the rate that tax is paid at.
If you would like to find out more please download our Legacy
information from here.
eBAY FOR CHARITY
If you have an unwanted item to sell, listing it on eBay for Charity can help
to raise funds for the engine. Selling this way:
- Is highly cost effective
- Reaches a bigger customer base than a high-street shop
- Raises funds and awareness for The Sir Nigel Gresley Locomotive Trust

A win-win opportunity for all! When you shop online Easyfundraising offers the opportunity of making purchases
from more than 2,000 retailers and service providers who will donate a certain amount to the SNGLT. Some donate a
percentage of the purchase price - some a fixed amount. Furthermore, some firms such as insurance companies will
offer very advantageous online quotes to new customers meaning you can save a good amount on a first premium, plus
they'll donate up to £45 as well! This is something that can be taken advantage of every year, saving
you money and adding to SNGLT funds. You need to register, but this is a simple process and one that will enable
you to keep track of just how much you personally have raised through this scheme.
Many people shop online today, especially those who live in more remote rural areas, so why not
"add value" to your purchase by raising funds simply through making the purchases you would make
anyway? Follow this link to
Just some of the companies who will donate through Easyfundraising:
Furthermore you can use their Easysearch search engine to find things on the Internet that will also
contribute a small amount for every completed click-through. This is not a brand new search engine itself but one
that uses established ones such as Yahoo! Search and Bing. Why not make it your browser's default search
Unfortunately only the UK based branches of the retailers listed fall within the scope of
Easyfundraising which means our supporters overseas are not able to take advantage of this scheme unless buying
from a company in the UK, but they can still help by using Easysearch.

possible. In recognition of the increased contribution, Friends would be
