The Lord Mayor’s Charities have two fantastic offers for those into modes of transport - a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to win a ride on the footplate of the world famous ‘Oliver Cromwell’ steam locomotive and the opportunity for an exclusive visit to RAF Linton. All funds raised will support Special Olympics, City of York and SSAFA, The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association Forces Help; both charities benefit and support local York people.

£10 Raffle tickets for the ‘Oliver Cromwell’ footplate ride (limited to 999) will be on sale at the Model Railway Exhibition at York racecourse over the Easter weekend.

If planes are more your passion, then just make a bid for an exclusive visit on Wednesday 1st May to RAF Linton for up to 20 people  

‘Winning either of these extraordinary experiences will be a day out money, quite simply, cannot buy!’ said Lord Mayor, Councillor Keith Hyman.

Raffle tickets and Linton bid forms are available at the Model Railway Exhibition and from the Civic Office - email civicenquiries@york.gov.uk or telephone 01904 551011 before 30 April.
