Would you like to Gift Aid your Donation?

I would like the Nene Valley Railway to reclaim the tax on this and any other eligible donations or membership subscriptions that I may make in the future until further notice. I understand that I need to pay enough Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax in each tax year to cover the Gift Aid claimed on all my donations to charity, otherwise it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

If your tax circumstances change, or if you do not wish Gift Aid to apply to any specific donations, please contact us on 01780 784444 or email customercare@nvr.org.uk
