How You Can Help
STOP PRESS: As you are no doubt aware, the current lockdown has severely inhibited our ability to hold fundraising events, which has impacted on our income for the year. We are now attempting to make up the shortfall in our funding streams through a variety of sources.
One of these is the Movement For Good prize draw. Please would you nominate us?
These awards are designed to give eligible charities the financial assistance they need to help them make a difference. In total, the awards will give £1,000 to each of 500 charities. We would love to be one of them, as this award could make a big difference to sustaining us through this difficult situation we are all currently facing.
It is quick and easy to nominate us. Just visit: www.movementforgood.com (either click on the link or for text only emails, paste the link into your browser) and click on “nominate now”.
The information required to complete the nomination is: Charity No. XT33443.
If you click on the orange square to the right of the charity number, it will automatically bring up the name of the charity:
The George the Fifth Steam Locomotive Trust
Select that, then click “yes”.
Charity type is ‘Community’ (scroll down to see this). Then fill in your personal information until you reach the question “Who are you?”. Select ‘Other’ (scroll down to see this), then click on ‘Submit’.
The more nominations we get, the greater our chances of winning, so please spread the word to your friends and family as well and ask for their help on our behalf.
The closing date for nominations is Sunday May 24.
Thank you very much for taking the time to do this.
