|How you can Help|
This project, alone among many such ‘new build’ projects that have been launched, has finally been completed. However, of the £3 million raised and spent on the construction of Tornado, £500,000 of debt remains to be repaid.
Tornado's entry into main line service has been a huge success and this is reflected in the continued inflow of funds. This has been achieved primarily through the simple but effective device of getting people to pay small amounts regularly; specifically, £5 or multiples of £5 every month although other fundraising schemes are also now in place.
A further way you can help is by establishing a Legacy. Click on the Establish a Legacy link on the right hand menu to read about how you can do this with complete confidentiality.
As part of our ongoing Educational remit, we have speakers nationwide who can offer a fascinating Lecture with a digital media Presentation to interested groups about our work, and how Tornado came to be. A suggested minimum donation for one of these talks is appreciated. Just click on the Attending Presentations link to see our forthcoming Lecture dates plus further information on how to book a speaker. We can promise that 'From Dream to Steam, The Tornado Story' will provide a most interesting occasion for your next group or corporate event.
There is another unique way in which you can help us with a vitally important missing piece of the jigsaw. Click on the “Support Coach” link to read more about our latest fund raising initiative to raise the “bread” for Tornado’s very own support coach. By buying a “slice”, a “doorstep”, “half a loaf” or a “loaf”, you can help the Trust finance the overhaul and restoration of a dedicated support coach, in return for which you will receive several benefits. So please “use your loaf” and complete a donation form today - and Tornado could be running with her own new support coach during 2012.
