We did it! Thank you for helping us raise a whopping £36,263

Hello supporters, friends and backers of FlyPlymouth.

Our crowdfund is now over - and we finished on a huge £36,263 - a palindromic number no less, and certainly exceeding our minimum target of £25k!

Thank you to every single one of the 330 people who pledged and supported us financially. A few stats that might interest you: a third of pledges came from outside the South West, with people as far as Hong Kong and Burma pledging.

Another stat: on Facebook we had a huge amount of interaction, with over 220,000 people seeing, liking and commenting on our content over the last 6 weeks of the crowdfund.

Half of that came on Friday when our graphic "Do you want Plymouth Airport reopened" gained over 110,000 unique views, and thousands of likes, comments and shares, all of which affirmed that YES - people want our Airport reopened!

So thank you, thank you, thank you.

If you didn't pledge on this crowdfund, but wish you did (and already we've had people say they wish they had!), then you can STILL support our work by donating on our website.
