Last Few Days - a final push

Dear all our followers and Crowdfunders

Firstly a big thank-you to the many of you who have already supported the Crowdfunder or offered other types of support.  We are now over £14,140 and edging closer to our stretch target of £15,000.  It would be amazing to achieve that last £860.It will now definitely close this Thursday the 29th at 5.39pm. Anything you can do to promote this for the last few days would be hugely appreciated.In addition to the fantastic contributions from RBS Back Her Business and Crowdfunder Stirling Grant there have been so many generous donations of both money, time and 'things'. In keeping with our ethos, last week we went to the architectural salvage yard, and sourced two old belfast sinks and some retro lights to brighten up the shop. We should have a picture of those in situ in the next few days.And we have made the news with this article featured in Friday's edition of the Stirling Observer.  Below are a couple of photos of the cyprus wood for the counter top and it's newly constructed base. In the background you can see where the dishwasher and large and small belfast sinks will go.It's all very exciting. We still anticipate opening during September and will be in touch about an opening date as soon as we have a firm date........along with when the various rewards will be available.Please continue to like and share the Crowdfunder and our Facebook page over the next few days if you can and if you could mention it to family and friends that would be greatly appreciated.We can't 'Weight' to welcome you all into the shop.Kind Regards,The Weigh Ahead Team
