Donations and Sponsorship

 

Gisborne City Vintage Railway:

We are an incorporated society and registered charity, not a Trust.

Our official title is 'Gisborne City Vintage Railway Inc'.

Membership fees are $20 per annum for an individual and $30 for a family.

We are always looking for donations and sponsors no matter how small or how large in order to keep our Wa165 running. We would love to speak to you about any assistance such as product, labour, donations or anything else that you may be able to give to us. Feel free to ring 06 867 0385 or email on info@GCVR.org.nz
