New stretch target

Thanks everyone for your kind pledges. As we've a few hours to go we thought we'd set a small stretch target as we know a few people are still out there who have said they want to pledge!

There's still time to pledge before 2pm today!

The film sequel to Falmouth and the Great War - plotting the lives of those that fought in the Second World War from Falmouth

Students of the University of Exeter, supported by the technical expertise of students at Falmouth University, are researching those that fought and died in the Second World War from Falmouth.

The town played an important role in the defence of Britain and the eventual liberation of Europe in 1944. The film will tell the stories of civilians and military personel alike to show how Falmouth endured and then overcame the threat of Nazi Germany.

The money raised will be combined with grants from the University of Exeter and other funders. By pledging you will make the sequel to Falmouth and the Great War a reality.

Falmouth and the Great War was recently shown at the Poly in Falmouth and it is hoped that if all the funding is secured this should also be possible in late 2015.

Once again presented by Louis Allen, directed by Dr John Ault and supported by the team at Cornish Story the project is an exciting piece of work that will tell the town more about it's history and the way in which it contributed to the war effort.

This time we will be conducting much more filming in the town to reflect the nature of the war being fought on the home front as well as abroad. More students will also be involved in the project bringing in new skills and mediums as part of the way we plan to show Falmouth's story in the war. Please give as generously as you can.
