In addition to the £3033 donation from the Co-op Community Fund recently announced we have had a generous donation of £5000 from one of our long term supporters and another £3000 from Reading Support Group. This gives us just over £11000 towards the aft saloon project and the electrical fittings. The Fun Food and Craft event on 1st December did well despite the weather and made a further very worthwhile contribution.
The board are continuing to look for further sponsorship but the desired timescales rule out formal grant applications to charitable trusts. We will have to rely on individual donations, smaller grants and sponsorship. If you know anyone who might help please get in touch with them or pass details to us at firstname.lastname@example.org On top of that our prospective publisher for the proposed children's book has revised the specification giving us a much reduced sponsorship target of £3400 for a 1000 print run. This is as good as finding a first sponsor! We will not raid the restoration budget for this project and need it to be independently financed.
