Appeal update

The recent appeal that we launched on the 7th February 2021 https://norfolk-orbital-railway.co.uk/appeal-for-5000-to-purchase-land-at-high-kelling/ is going very well. Thanks to your generosity we have already raised over £3000. The Melton Constable Trust would like to thank everyone who has donated and for the support shown, your ongoing help is very much appreciated. Less than £2000 is needed and so if you would like to help please go to our link here: https://norfolk-orbital-railway.co.uk/support-us/

Please Join Us

Over the years that the Norfolk Orbital Railway has been active, we have received, and continue to receive, valuable support in the form of individual donations and monthly standing order contributions. For these we are extremely grateful, and it is undoubtedly your valued support to date that has allowed us to get to the position we are in today.

As we move forward it has become necessary to formalise our methodology for raising funds and maintaining and protecting the contact details of our supporters and friends. As such the following will be introduced.

People can continue to donate ad hoc funds without having to register their details with us if they so wish, but if they are willing to register with us, they will become “Supporters” of the Norfolk Orbital Railway. “Supporters” will receive communications and newsletters from us, as they arise, unless they have elected not to receive such communication in their contact preferences when they register.

Supporters can pay a one off ad hoc amount, a monthly or a yearly subscription to suit their budget. Supporter status will be retained for 1 (one) year after the last donation is received. The amounts specified are suggested amounts only.

A one off donation of £500.00 or more will bestow upon that person “Friend for Life” status and will entitle them to benefits which will be announced in due course.

All payments can be made via our secure payment links to PayPal or our Credit Card payment platform. Our bank details are below for those who would rather pay by electronic transfer or standing order and of course we still welcome the more traditional payment methodology of a cheque sent to our headquarters as well.

Please make cheques payable to Melton Constable Trust and send to The Melton Constable Trust.  c/o Mr. David Bill MBE, 8a, Thornfield Way, Hinckley, Leics. LE10 1BE
