Why not become a Superfriend?

The Superfriends' scheme is a way to make monthly contribution, from as little as £5 a month, but you can give more! Shares will be issued when £100 is accrued and you could be eligible for 30% tax relief under the government Enterprise Investment Scheme (don't worry we'll sort out the paperwork)

One of the great things about Superfriends for the project is that it provides a regular source of income, so we can plan ahead with the design and manufacture of the components. Even some of the smaller parts which are essential for the build. 

Friends' contributions have recently paid for equipment for the unit, such as the A-frame gantry crane as well as the following components: -

The four main springs, spring hangers, tank support brackets and rear cylinder covers.
