Hope in Depression Crowd Fund Supporters...... AN UPDATE - WITH 14 DAYS TO GO!!

First - A massive thank you for your generosity. With your help, we have, so far, raised an amazing £4,740  

That £5,000 target is so tantalisingly close!!  It does not bear thinking about the possibility that we might miss it by a fraction and fail to qualify for the £1500 pledged by Sport England. So, whilst donations continue to come in, we are making a huge final push to expand the number of supporters.  

I have always dreamed big, and I would love for us to reach our extended target of £10,000.  National Emergency Trust will match fund us up to £10,000. So, if we hit £10,000, they will match us with another £10,000.   Please help us make this happen.  

PLEASE DO WHAT YOU CAN TO SPREAD THE WORD WHILST THERE IS STILL TIME. With 2 weeks to go, any additional supporters we can muster are going to be vital.  We have found that family, friends & work colleagues have been happy to get involved. 

THERE ARE STILL SOME REWARDS TO BE CLAIMED. Leather bound handmade notebooks, and Aura spa massage, a £50 voucher for a meal at the Thatched Tavern, come on you buy it, and it is yours.  No bidding. All prices are at a massive, discounted rate. So, take advantage of these generous offers from all the local businesses that have supported us.
