***NEW – Online Memberships

As of Nov 2020 we now have an online system for memberships via our Golden Giving pages. Its the quickest and simplest way to apply for membership or to renew your current membership when it expires. You can also add Gift Aid this way.

Gift Aid

Please consider using Gift Aid when sending your Membership Subscription, as it means The Northampton & Lamport Railway CIO can recover a sum equal to the basic rate of income tax you paid, thus helping your donation go further.

Imagine what a difference that could make and it doesn’t cost you a thing!

To qualify for Gift Aid, what you pay in income tax or capital gains tax must equal or exceed the amount the charity will claim in the tax year. If you are a higher rate tax payer you will also be able to claim a tax relief through your tax return.
