We did it, we raised £3,132 on our previous crowdfunder and have now purchased 20,000 EU flags to give out on the Last Night of the BBC Proms. All of our money went into the flags. We have doubled our flag count every year. This is certainly the biggest ever give away of crowdfunded EU flags..
There are some additional things we want to do to make the event even better so want to raise a little bit more money:
- We want all our volunteers to be wearing our t-shirts
- We want all our volunteers to have a branded bag to carry the flags
- We want to hand out a leaflet with each flag
- We want street musicians to entertain people going into the hall with performances of Ode to Joy
- We want to buy a gift for orchestra from EU Flag Mafia.
- We want to buy a gift for the European Youth Orchestra
- We have other ideas but can't mention them here...
This year we want to cover Hyde Park and the Hall. We also need at least 50 volunteers to come and give out our flags.
Please support us raise this extra money. You can also pledge to get one of our great t-shirts which will be posted out to you in time for the event.
