This certificate recognizes your sponsorship of one of the 1000 historic Whinstones which were removed from the outside of the Station so it could be moved, and which were replaced during restoration. 100% of the value will be issued to you as a tax receipt and your name, your family name, or the name of a loved one will appear on a plaque on the restored Burlington Junction Station.
