Standard plaque created in landscape view inclusive of VAT, plus a donation which is VAT exempt, of at least £140 for the refurbishment of a stanchion. Bays 4-8 have 50 stanchions in total allotted sequentially. The plaque will be attached to the coping beam close to the stanchion.
Note:You MUST include your engraved message in the notes during checkout.
For every stanchion sponsored, you get a personalised plaque with the message of your choice.
Please put your inscription(s) in the 'optional' notes section during checkout. The Queen’s Pier Restoration Trust retain the right to refuse wording they consider to be of an unsuitable nature. Please refer to the full Terms and Conditions for further guidance.
The cost of the plaque is included in the sponsorship of the stanchion and is currently £10 as charged by the Manx Workshop for the Disabled. It is made from multilayered plastic to keep the cost within bounds, as a brass plaque would have cost as much as a plank, but inevitably the plaques will deteriorate over time in the marine environment - particularly when waves wash over the pier in storms.
If a donor during a visit believes that there is significant damage to a plaque then they can purchase a replacement from the Trust at the then current cost. This also applies if for some reason the wording needs amendment. However, replacements can only be fed into the batches of new plaques as it is impractical to manufacture individuals, and so it will always take considerable time before manufacture can take place.
Exceptionally, if the Trust feel that the condition of a plaque is detrimental to the overall appearance of the pier, but the donor does not wish to replace the plaque, the Trust reserves the right to remove it and, if requested, store same in the building for collection.
