Sponsor a Trammer...
A number of the popular tram horses have retired while the tramway service has been curtailed by the Douglas Promenades Refurbishment Scheme and the Covid-19 pandemic.

The upkeep and welfare of the tram horses and the operation and maintenance of the Horse Tramway are presently being fully funded by the Isle of Man Government in support of the Island's heritage and tourism offering.

We have therefore taken the decision not to run our Sponsor-a-Trammer fundraising programme for 2021/22. This applies to new and renewing sponsorships. We are sorry for any disappointment this may cause.

The Trust will continue to offer financial support for education and conservation initiatives relating to the Horse Tramway, its draught horses and its historic tramcars, including the provision of appropriate visitor information signage and literature, for implementation when the tramway re-opens.  If you would like to make a donation to the Trust for those purposes, please visit our Make a Donation page for more information.

You may also like to help support and adopt one of the many retired trammers now at the Isle of Man Home of Rest for Old Horses, a separate charitable organisation which relies on public donations.
