Here is the good news! We have just passed our original target of £12,500! (exact figure as of today is £12,610.00) This is a fantastic amount to have raised in such a short time from such small communities. Many thanks to all of you who have contributed.
And now for the bad news. The figure of £12,500 required to fight the Linfairn wind farm application was our best estimate based on information we had at the time. However, we now believe that we should increase this fund to about £17,500 if we are to have all options at our disposal in our fight.
So, if you have already donated, many thanks: and think about us again if you find any loose change down the back of the sofa. For those who intended to make a donation but have not yet done so, your contribution is still absolutely vital, so please don’t put it off.
We are planning some fundraising activities which will help too – news will be posted here of course. You will also shortly be able to find out how the money is spent in detail – both through a dedicated page on the website and through future editions of our newsletter.
