Nothing ever goes quite as smoothly as you plan....

Just wanted to update you as I'm conscious that it's been a few weeks since we closed our campaign.  We've hit a few snags which has delayed a few things, but all is resolvable!

  1. The Community Foundation for Calderdale's paypal account (which this campaign was linked to for some payments) has had a glitch & paypal are requesting all sorts of information because there have been so many transactions hitting it. So there are a few pledges which haven't gone through. If your pledge hasn't gone through yet, then when it is released again, Crowdfunder will email you a new link, which should work!  Sorry if you've been affected by this messing around but it's out of our hands.
  2. Thank you if you ordered a Hebden VIP Card. The printers have had some delays in acquiring the cards, but I've been told this morning that they will be completed by weekend. Therefore we plan to post them out to you early next week, along with a list of the shops/restaurants that are participating, and a web page link where these offers may be added to over the coming weeks and months.
  3. If you purchased any other reward, you should have already been contacted by the supplier, or you will be very shortly (once all pledges cleared). If you need any reward urgently, and you haven't heard from your supplier, please email us via this page.

Once again many thanks for backing us. This campaign made a world of difference to many of the businesses taking part. And let's hope it's never needed ever again!
