↑ Return to Donate


All donations are received by the Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group which is a Registered Charity (1167143) dedicated to rebuilding RB396. The project can only exist through the generosity of its supporters. Any donation, no matter the size, is gratefully received and most importantly by UK law can only be used to benefit the charity’s goals.

If you chose to donate, please remember to consider Gift Aid which allows us as a Charity to claim back the Tax paid by UK tax payers and grants us 25% more funds at no extra cost to you, the donor.



Amazon Smile
Do you use Amazon for purchases? Well, if so, with one extra button click you can earn a percentage of the purchase for the project. At no extra cost to you. All you need to do is ensure you use the “Amazon Smile” webpage, rather than “Amazon” itself. The two look identical, you get all the features, Prime, all the products, the lot. But, by going through Amazon Smile and nominating the Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group, Amazon donate 0.5% of the Net purchase price of every sale to us. But only if you go through Amazon Smile initially. 0.5% doesn’t sound like much, but the average spend of an Amazon Prime member is approximately £1100 per year. If 0.5% of that went to the project, that would be £5.50 per person, so if everyone did this, it could earn a significant amount of income for the project in a year. You need to go to smile.amazon.co.uk and register us as the Charity to receive the donation and make sure to use that webpage for all visits, instead of the main Amazon page.

This festive season, shop on AmazonSmile at https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/1167143-0, and Amazon donates to Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group, at no cost to you.

Easy fundraising

easyfundraising.org.uk turns your everyday online shopping into free donations for your favourite cause. How? Just start your online shopping first at easyfundraising, then shop as normal. Their retailers will then make a small donation to say “thank you”.

They have 3,757 retailers to choose from and so far have raised over £28 million for thousands of community groups, schools, sports clubs, small and large charities across the UK. Easy!


Take a charity day
Almost all large companies give their staff a number of Charity days in a year, on top of annual leave. Most people don’t know about it. So, perhaps you could ask your company if they do, and if they do, perhaps you could volunteer a day for the project? This, in turn, helps to generate income, at airshows, events, and other schemes.

Run your own fundraiser

Are you taking on a challenge, running a marathon, half marathon, a 5k, a cake morning or a birthday fundraiser? Whatever the event, being a registered charity, the funds from your event can come to the project, and don’t forget they could be eligible for Gift Aid, see above. Facebook fundraisers are becoming popular, with Facebook claiming $300 million raised in one year. It takes a little effort to set up, but if 1000 supporters were all able to raise £50 through some sort of charitable activity, then that is half the total required to complete the rear fuselage…


We are registered for Gift Aid, if you have made a donation or taken out membership and you are a UK tax payer please consider completing a Gift Aid Declaration so that we are able to claim back the tax that has been paid on it. It doesn’t cost you anything on your original donation and enables us to receive 125% of your donation.




You can pay directly into our bank account, either as a one off payment or Standing Order. A Standing Order is like a Direct Debit, a payment which can be set at regular intervals (most people do once a month), except the control remains with the person setting it up. Unlike a Direct Debit it can be varied only by you, it can be increased, reduced, or stopped altogether. There is no commission, so we receive 100% of the donation.

A Standing Order payment of just £2 per month from every follower of ours on Social Media, would result in £80,000 a month, or £960,000 a year. It would equate to £1.2million if the donations were eligible for GiftAid. The entire budget for the rebuild is £5million, a donation of £2 a month could see that achieved in just over four years, purely through donations.

The Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group bank account details for a one off donation or a Standing Order are:

Account name: Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group

Sort Code: 09-01-29

Account Number: 08322768

Santander, 9 Nelson Street, Bradford, West Yorkshire, BD1 5AN


IBAN: GB54ABBY09012908322768

We receive 100% of your donation through the group’s bank account but we are able to claim an extra 25% if you complete a Gift Aid Declaration.

If you would like to set up a Standing Order for a regular transfer, then please use these details.

PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online!

If you prefer to use Paypal, please use the button shown. Paypal takes commission for donations and GiftAid declaration must be completed separately. You don’t need an account, but please be aware Paypal do take a commission on any donation. However, that is better than no donation.



If you would like to donate any amount via a cheque payment, please make the cheque payable to the HAWKER TYPHOON PRESERVATION GROUP and post it to:

Unit 10, Ridgewood Industrial Estate, Uckfield, East Sussex, TN22 5QE.

We cannot process a membership application on receipt of a cheque for the amount.
