Good news! Friends of Duxford Green Spaces has been awarded a grant of £4000 by the Dulverton Trust, specifically for the Brewery Field project. The Parish Council has a pending application for £50,000 from Amey and are cautiously optimistic, so we could be moving forward by the new year!
Not long to go until Christmas! We have already raised nearly £90 through easyfundraising, from just a few who have used it – please have a go, it will cost you nothing and is easy to do.
We are using a great website called easyfundraising, to help raise money for Friends of Duxford Green Spaces – simply by shopping online.
easyfundraising turns your everyday online shopping into FREE donations when you use easyfundraising to shop with over 3,300 retailers such as Amazon, eBay, John Lewis, Argos, NEXT and Booking.com.
Our retailers then make a small donation to say ‘thank you’ and easyfundraising gives those free funds to the cause.
We could raise huge amounts if everyone signs up – please register using this unique link – just search for ‘Friends of Duxford Green Spaces’ and click ‘support us’ – https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/invite/2VJMB5/607KNO/
You can download the donation reminder that will remind you whenever you are browsing the website of a participating retailer.
If you have a smart phone or tablet, download the FREE easyfundraising app from the App Store or Google Play Store and follow the instructions on screen.
Even better, once you’ve signed up and raised £5 in donations, easyfundraising will give us an extra £5 donation.
There’s no catch or hidden charges and Friends of Duxford Green Spaces will be really grateful for your donations.
A HUGE thank you to all the friendly and supportive air show viewers who donated – in spite of the rain on Saturday and chilly wind on Sunday, we raised almost £200 from just one collection box.
It was great chatting to you all – if you would like to receive progress updates by email, please consider joining as a friend. You can also donate on line – every £1 brings us nearer to our goal.
We have a couple of big funding applications in the pipeline, which if successful, will enable us to start work this autumn . Watch this space!
Having struggled to get my 89 year old mum on and off the field safely, it is clear that we need at least one accessible and yet secure entrance fairly urgently!
Here’s a copy of the Airshow flyer for you to print off.
