Title: cardboard caving fundraiser for a bigger project
Post by: PaulW on March 12, 2019, 11:12:00 pm
A project we are working on that stemmed from Paul Dolds memory and funeral donation to install a permanent artificial cave system in West Sussex

The actual total from the weekend with making people more aware of the project was nearer £4000, still along way to go on raising funds, but progress is coming along nicely

Unable to follow the link to SW County Times. Perhaps you have to be subscriber. 

I did however find this page on Facebook (although you may need a fb profile to view it)

 :thumbsup: Works for me now too, so perhaps it was a glitch on the SW County Website. I couldn't access any of their searched results this morning.

Thank you for asking about contributions and Thanks Mike for posting the link

My aim here is to show what is going to happen and keep you updated as the project progresses (however I won't stop you from donating  ;) )

The current total raised stands at about £15k with firm promises of at least the same again. applications for grant funding has just begun, so the project is moving forward nicely

Thank Laurie

That can be arranged and I plan to keep updates coming through UKC, though it is a project that is not going to happen overnight

One thing that is worth adding as it has just been confirmed to me is that the Total also includes a donation of;

 £3000 from Hidden Earth

so amassive thank you
