Becoming a Friend of Bennerley Viaduct

It is really easy to support the Friends of Bennerley Viaduct by becoming a Friend. Our Friends not only provide us with valuable funds that enable us to carry out our work, they also lend us authority and influence when we seek to raise further funding for the project. In addition, our Friends bring a huge range of skills and experience to a project that is making a real difference. To enable being a Friend to be within reach of all, there is a minimum charge of £5 per year though additional donations would be welcome. A life Friend membership costs £50. This pays for the running costs of the group.
