The Swing the Bridge fund thermometer in Faversham Town Square, has been upgraded to show total receipts of £75,000.
Many thanks are due to all those who have contributed or helped to raise funds. This is an astounding result for just four months actual fundraising, and confirms that we are on course to achieving the full amount required to secure a Swing Bridge, rather than a fixed one, provided we keep up the pace, till the end of September, just eight weeks away.
So, if you are thinking about it, now is the time to put hand in pocket or pen to cheque and make your contribution, no matter how small, as every little bit helps. The easiest way is to use the on-line GIVEY fund at the head of this page. Don’t forget that Gift Aid is worth 25% on top, so sign a Gift Aid form.

This is the first drawing of the new SWING BRIDGE, that has been issued by KCC as part of a public consultation by the Marine Management Organisation. The details of this consultation can be seen at the Faversham Library.
We’ve been asked why our Swing-the-Bridge page on Givey.com is showing only £10,000 as our target – when in fact the total target £125k! That’s because we thought that people would like to give online (including Gift Aid if possible) and the £10k challenge was achievable for people giving small amounts, or little and often.
Of course, we are also fundraising with Events, approaching Trusts and Organisations, and other Major Donors, to reach the big total. Progress so far is excellent, with widespread support, £40,000 in cash received and a further £30,000 in pledges. That leaves just £55,000 to go!
So Please help us today! Don’t leave it for later…. go to http://www.givey.com/swingthebridge – and thank you! Every single pound and penny counts!
