PARK FAMILY PARTY
by Jez Bond
A lovely evening on site yesterday, the Park Family party was a chance for Melli, Annabel and I to invite people to the site as many of our trustees and ambassadors had done. We had the largest turn out to date - about thirty people - and it was good to see that we could deal with the numbers. Melli and I each led a tour staggered just a couple of minutes apart and this worked very well. We were pledged some great donations on the night and emails with pledges and promises of cheques are still coming in. Thanks to all our fabulous and supportive friends! I can't wait to throw more parties... but for now it's back to the grind stone, writing more applications to trusts and foundations and chasing up some to whom we already submitted. This is a great milestone and now I know we're absolutely going to do it all!
