The Auction of promises concluded on Sunday evening with one special late arrival promise ending on Monday evening – The Red Arrows visit.
The results of the funds raised through the call my bluff wine tasting ticket sales, auction of promises and the Red Arrows bid together totalled an amazing….
Well done to everyone involved and a huge thank you to both the promisers and the bidders.
This massive amount will provide nearly a third of the cost of rebuilding the wall.
There is more fund raising still needed and Paul Kitson will be carrying out a sponsored walk, endeavouring to complete the ‘Rutland Round’ non-stop on 26/27th April – a 62 mile walk! All proceeds will go to the Wall Fund – please sponsor him if you can. More details will be posted on NextDoor Wing.
Please pledge Paul a failed bid, preferably the largest one!. Paul says “You would have spent the money anyway, so spend on my walk!” Please send your pledges to this account / firstname.lastname@example.org. If anyone would like to join him on the walk he would be pleased to have you come along. If you wish to make a donation to the Wall Fund Raising, you can either give the money to Helen Cullen (and if you compete a gift aid form it will be worth 25% more) or use the Wing PCC Just Giving site: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/wingchurchardwall?utm_term=ggGQaKyEy
Thank you all so much – what a wonderful community effort!
Best Wishes, The Wing Covid19 Team.
