Please Note:  During the present Covid-19 situation, the horse tramway is closed and we are not actively promoting our Sponsor-a-Trammer fundraising scheme, nor undertaking education and conservation initiatives for the time being. The upkeep and welfare of the tram horses remain fully cared for by the Isle of Man Government.

Sponsor a Trammer...
Sponsor-a-Trammer is a fundraising campaign run by the Trust to help support education and conservation initiatives relating to the Horse Tramway, its draught horses and its historic tramcars. The Trammers presently available for sponsorship are:
You can sponsor a Trammer (or renew a sponsorship) via this webpage for just £12 and receive an A5-size colour 'Sponsor Card' (which includes the Trammer's photo and profile information).
New and renewing sponsors in 2020 also receive a set of four A5-size colour Picturecards (no.1 to no.4) from an exclusive series being published by the Trust.
Why not sponsor a Trammer as an unusual gift for a partner, family member or friend?

Sponsorships last up to 12 months, at the end of which we invite you by email to renew, or to sponsor another Trammer if, for example, your sponsored horse has since retired from the Tramway.

If you renew an existing sponsorship before it ends, your next sponsorship period will start on the day that your existing sponsorship period ends. In all other cases, the sponsorship period starts on the day you make payment.
