Just a little update on one of our open fundraisers. Back in February, we launched an appeal to try to raise £3,000 to put towards one particular piece of play equipment in the planned new playpark for the Livingstone Birthplace. The fundraiser Just Giving page has been open since then and has so far raised a fantastic £907, meaning we’re 30% of the way there.
Thanks to 35 very kind supporters, we’re helping make that step towards the goal of a brand new play area, worth of Blantyre children. Goodness knows all kids will be chomping at the bit to get back on outdoor play equipment!
We understand fully that fundraising is more difficult during this pandemic, but hope to resume focus on this endeavour in the coming weeks. Every penny raised will go to the David Livingstone Trust and put towards their Playpark fund, which currently sits at over £35,000.
Do YOU want to help? Every pound takes a step closer to children having a new Blantyre play area for a full generation of fun for all!
