Thank you for an incredible start!
Dear backers and supporters,
Thank you for an incredible start to our crowdfund to raise £75,000! We took to an iconic landmark in Plymouth, the National Marine Aquarium, to share an update on our progress:
If you can't watch the video above, click here.
As you will see in the video, we are going strong! Compared to last year, we have raised in 2 weeks what took us over 6 weeks to raise last time. We've also done this with half the number of backers, and have a very high average pledge-per-person.
However, we need to get the word out and draw the support of more people.
To do this, we've done two things:
1. We've released a series of 10 Mythbuster videos that address rumours and popupar opinions about the airport that aren't true, such as "Isn't the runway is too short", and "Isn't there housing on the airport?"
We've found that these myths can be obstacles in the way of people pledging, so please share them around!
You can watch all the videos on our YouTube playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4UcxJVrLgGqdeK2IOyfZuukL8Vs268cf
2. We are holding a Business Forum on Tuesday 11th October, 7pm at the Creative Arts School in Millbay.
We are inviting all businesses to come and debate the critical issues with our expert panel. We'll also be walking through our business plan for reopening and operating the airport.
Our hope is that upon hearing our business plans, businesses will be encouraged to pledge and back our campaign.
You can book for this free event in a click: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/flyplymouth-business-forum-registration-27951368295
Finally, please keep up your support! Thousands will watch our video and read this update. If all of those people pledged just £25 or £50, we'd hit our target.
So hit 'Pledge' on the right, or share this on Facebook, and let's get Plymouth flying!
