Could You Help Us?

Could you help to see No 27 Primrose run again?  So far through the generous hours and efforts of the members of the Fenchurch Fund and all of those who have donated and supported so far we have raised in excess of over £30,000 towards the restoration of 27. But to see 27 run once again we expect that we need to raise in the region of £125,000 to return her to active service! so If you feel that you’d like to help us achieve our aims then please follow our donate links below or subscribe to our 1027 club and help us to return the forgotten P Primrose back into steam!


Help today by making a donation to see No 27 Primrose return’d to steam by following the link below to our BT my Donate page or by clicking the PayPal donate button where you can make either a one off donation or a monthly re-occurring donation of your chosen amount.

Help us today to see this fine little engine run once again by joining our Rivet Club!

The Idea?

Hundreds of rivets go into the construction of an engine to make it whole, all playing their small part, and this inspired us and got us thinking! How could we raise the expected cost of £150,000 to see No 27 Primrose run again? Like each individual rivet that goes into the construction of an engine to make it whole if we where to break down this figure into a large number of individual monthly donations from a larger number of regular donating members the task of raising the funds to restore No 27 Primrose would become a lot less daunting and a lot more achievable!

The Rivet Club!

Hence the Rivet Club was born! Set at £3 a month to join the club (Less then a Pint of Beer to coin a catch phrase of a famous new build!) each member would contribute £36 a year. Not much you might say but if we where able to sign up 1000 members then this would equate to £36,000 a year towards the £150,000 needed and help to raise the funds required over a 5 year period!
