Finally, just to let you know – the money coming in is really pushing us towards our target – but we can’t stop now! We have banked over £75,000 and sent most of that to KCC, and we have promises from various Trusts and charities which bring us up to over £100,000 – so we are doing brilliantly; but these last few weeks will be absolutely crucial – so keep up the good work.
Thank you for your continued support for ‘Swing the Bridge!’
