Dear Supporter of The VegShed
as we close today our campaign with 101% raised of the target, and with profound appreciation for your support and help in promoting the campaign, we are writing with the saddest news that our dear Lin, the heart and soul of our business, died suddenly on Monday morning.
It was the day when we reached our 100th supporter and 100% of the initial target. Lin was watching the campaign closely and was feeling so happy for its success and prospects ahead.
The VegShed had been Lin's project, her idea, and her baby in a way. And we embarked on this, following her vision of having a safe and pleasant place for customers to find all we can offer throughout the year. Lin also wanted to run a small self-service cafe at the VegShed, with tea and coffee on offer and biscuits and may be cakes at weekends. She was often saying how people could stop in their walks or rydes and have a cuppa in the shade. Lin was really really looking forward to having this soon, and with company's limited resources we decided to try CrowdFunding to make this true.
The VegShed will always be associated with Lin, and we have decided to call it Lin's VegShed, a small gesture of appreciation for everything she did in this business since she founded it with Tolly in 1976.
We are in deep mourning, albeit trying to carry on the business as usual, serving our customers.
We shall be back very shortly with all Rewards coming your way.
We shall also keep everybody updated on the building progress and eventually - the launch day.
Please stay tuned and sign up to our e-Newsletter on www.tolhurstorganic.co.uk for further updates and events.
Thank You All!!!
