The end of the campaign

Hi Everyone, well the campaign ended today and I am so happy to report that with all the support received on Crowdfunder, cheques received in the post, donations direct to the Living Paintings website and Gift Aid, we have raised an astonishing £23,983! 


There have been so many highlights along the way, including multiple features and appearances on various radio shows including the Chris Moyles breakfast show on RadioX and appearances on BBC Radio Leeds and BBC Radio Berkshire. The campaign has had lots of online and paper press coverage too and even featured on TV on BBC Look North. I have received support from the Doctor Who community through their various fan groups; have received messages of support from Sir Derek Jacobi, David Bradley, Sylvester McCoy, Jo Martin, David Walliams and Matt Lucas to name a few and have even met one of my heroes, the incredible Tom Baker, who chatted with me about the campaign on Zoom a couple of weeks ago.


I am completely overwhelmed by the support received and thank everyone who has join me on this incredible journey.


All of this means Living Paintings can now begin producing 3 Touch to See books based on the iconic TV series which I cannot wait to see added to their free library service.


Thank you!... and for the final time, I can’t wait to see what happens next!
