Glad that all the primary schools in Lincolnshire will get a copy of this wonderful book, and pleased to see that this will be extended to secondary schools
I donated before and would now like it to spread to senior schools
I love this book and really pleased to see this great campaign from LWT
Great idea, great book.
The generosity of people running these crowdfunders, donating to these crowdfunders, is overwhelming and both Robert and myself are so grateful. Also the generosity of our publishers in providing the book at such a great discount. I love the connections the book has made between people, those who give, those who organise, those who deliver. And I just adore seeing the wild, creative beauty that is sweeping through classrooms because of this. Thank you everyone. From both of us. You give us hope.
I will put this wild beauty on the ceiling of my studio to remind me of the network of wild giving that has grown.
Love this initiative! Good luck.
Congratulations Lincolnshire on a great campaign! Lots of love Yorkshire x
So pleased to be able to support this wonderful initiative to bring The Lost Words alive for children (and grown-ups!) in Lincolnshire - huge thanks to the team that has made this possible.
Congratulations - this is a fantastic thing to do!
This gift is to honor my 19th century ancestors from Lincolnshire: Sarah Redfern Towers Humphrey (Grantham), Thomas Humphrey (Lincoln), Mary Ann Chambers Towers (Little Gonerby), William Towers (Easton).
The descendants in America remember whence we came; we’ll be in Lincolnshire soon, in fact, to honor family and place. By this gift, we also recognize the power of language to enrich and sustain us.
For the Fenestral and top support (PL)
The natural world is magical and so are the names of everything in it.
Without these names we are losing part of our history and saying that nature is no longer important.
I will re- gift this splendid work of art to encourage another donor.
No need to send.
💙 The Lost Words 😊
Well done and keep going. A wonderful thing to do
In an ideal world every child would have a copy of this book. Best wishes for the success of your project.
"We find it hard to love what we cannot name; and what we don't love we won't save."
Our lexicon should expand, not contract. Remember and revive the lost words and maintain that joyful connection with nature and a rich vocabulary.
I have this book, it’s beautiful and I love the idea of young children enjoying this love of the natural world as I absorbed in my own Lincolnshire childhood and carry with me through my life 😊❤️
A very worthy cause. Fingers crossed you can reach the target in time :)
Respect for the environment should start with those that will become the future custodians. This is a good way to raise their awareness of nature and its benefits.
Lincolnshire is sometimes a bit of a Lost Place; no one seems to know where it is! But it is a wonderful land of huge skies and fabulous landscapes and a home to wildlife of all shapes and sizes, including small children who deserve to handle and delight in this book.
This is made on behalf of the Alford and Mablethorpe Group of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust to encourage children to know and care for the environment.
Donation of £60 is from visitors to the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust stand at the Lincolnshire Show - thank you to all who donated and took time to talk about The Lost Words.
Lincolnshire is rich in wildlife and having been taught at Winthorpe Primary School in Skegness where nature played a big part in our learning; either through trips to the beach, or learning to growing plants outside or overnight stays in the Wolds. I feel it is critical for every day words relating to the outside world to be known by the next generation and that this tradition of learning continues in my home county. This book will be a beautiful tool for that.
