Well, that went well!!!

The Crowdfunder appeal finished this morning and the grand total on the page was: £17,641. I missed £20 that had been paid by BACS, so that's actually: £17,661 raised in 28 days!!

Clare and I have run out of superlatives to describe this!! We had a chat on the phone this morning and agreed it had been a really positive experience for us both - we've loved working together!! Of course, I'm the one who benefits from the funding and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Clare for coming up with the idea, encouraging me to give it a go, working really hard to create a great appeal and holding my hand all the way through. When I tried to express this to Clare this morning, it came out as uncontrollable blubbing! - I think she understood!!

But, of course, the people we both want to thank are you - nearly 300 supporters - you've been so generous with your money and with your words of encouragement (which have meant such a lot!!). As a result: studio recording sessions have been booked, a 2 hour Zoom meeting has been set up with the website design team and recording equipment is currently being being perused (fortunately, I'm getting professional advice with this - I like the red audio interface - it looks great... but will it do the job?).

Anyway - I'll be in touch again about the rewards, but for now: 

THANK YOU!!

Love Faith and Clare
