As a Registered Charity (No. 1098733), we rely heavily on donations from the society’s membership and the general public. These donations enable the society to continue the preservation and operation of our locomotives and other assets, expand and improve the society’s depot and museum facility, and educate the public about the achievements of the Deltic locomotives in British railway history.

If you would like to make a donation, or join the society, and are a taxpayer, you may also like to complete a gift aid declaration, which means that, for each £1 you give as a donation or membership, the society can claim an additional 25p. A £10 donation therefore becomes worth £12.50 to us. A Standing Order form can be downloaded by CLICKING HERE. You may also make a donation online (and use gift aid) by clicking on the red 'Donate' button at the top of the home page. 

Please make the effort to submit this gift aid form. For a small amount of effort on your behalf, the volunteers and Board of your society can do so much more to keep the Deltic name alive.


Thank you for your support.
