PUT THE BRAKES ON

Our latest fund is to raise money to enable us to purchase the components for the brake gear; brake hangers, brake shafts, brake rods, brake shaft cranks, brake lever and brake hanger carriers.

We are doing this slightly differently; a donation of £50 will buy 1lb of machined brake component. As with our other funds you can pay by instalments. Shares will be issued for contributions of £100 or over and EIS tax relief of 30% is available to UK tax payer.
