Three ways to help
By Purchasing Share(s) in The 4253 Locomotive Company Limited
In this way you become a part owner of the Locomotive, have a say in decisions affecting it and receive a number of other benefits. All monies from the sale of shares are used solely towards the cost of restoration and for no other purpose.
By Sponsoring Part(s) Required for the Restoration
This is an increasingly popular scheme enabling both shareholders and non-shareholders to either purchase outright or contribute towards the cost of items that are either missing altogether or are unfit for further use. The current list includes parts from as little as £50 to many £1,000’s with the higher cost items being split into lower cost ‘units’.
By Making a Donation
This is simply deciding how much you wish to give towards the project, and then either BUY ONLINE to pay by debit/credit card or PayPal account or, alternatively, forward a cheque (payable to The 4253 Locomotive Co Ltd) to Old Chilmington Oast, Chilmington Green, Ashford, Kent TN23 3DP.
Once again, all monies from donations are used solely towards the cost of restoration and for no other purpose.
We thank you for taking the time to read this and, if you choose any of these options, then the time before 4253 returns to steam will have become a little shorter.
