We are now 14 days into our 30-day Investing in The Witham campaign and we wanted to update you with some facts about how it’s going, and thank the many who have contributed.
So far, 71 people have donated £12,001 counting Gift Aid. A number of people have set up standing orders so that they can make regular donations. In the longer term, this will make a big difference. For example, if we were able to find 100 people to make a regular donation of £10 a month, that would be worth £15,000 a year. This would allow us to programme events for almost a whole month. If you decide to set up a standing order with your bank, please be clear to tell them when you want it to start.
People have started to add Fundraising Events to our BTDonate web page so if you have had an idea for something you can deliver yourself and which you think would help us to generate additional funds towards the campaign, please consider setting up your own challenge through that site. Fundraising challenges that are already on the site are:
Suzanne Wallace who is looking for sponsorship to run 15km in 2 hours and has already received pledges for £230 of her £500 target.
Madelene Sutton sought to raise £200 of sponsorship for her Lakeland 10 peak challenge and has already reached above her target, but her page is still open. It was an amazing solo walk.
Sarah Gent and her two daughters were targeting £500 for the Creative Chalk Challenge on Saturday 8 September and have already raised £970.
