Sponsor a Part for 3850

For the past few years we have been including parts sponsorships as one of our fundraising initiatives – these have proved very worthwhile and we are again arranging a sponsorship drive.

All sponsors are entered into a Free Draw (also open to anyone who forwards their name and address) – the prizes are often things that money can’t buy!

Advertising Leaflets have been included inn Dinmore News and will be available at all the shows and galas we attend this year – Bristol Model Railway Show and West Somerset Railway Spring Gala, both at the end of April will see our stalls and volunteers publicising our company.

Sponsorship form below – print it off and send to 22 South Park, Minehead, TA24 8AL

Payment can be made through our PayPal account -  see our Payments Page and use the “donate” button – and e-mail the details of your sponsorship to dh.foster@btinternet.com
