|Save Kensal Rise Library Fundraising Appeal - Crunch Time!|
£54,669 pledged so far; Goal: £70,000 by September 7th 2012
This campaign hasn't finished yet. They need to get financial help and you can have a name on the wall, large or small, name a shelf or sponsor a chair - in perpetuity. Maybe you'd consider this, or know someone who would.
In their own words:
"Please put your money where your books should be! Libraries connect communities. Help our fight to prove it.
We urgently need financial support to strengthen our bid to All Souls. We need to raise enough funds to secure the first year of operations (which includes urgent repairs to the building). We have a strong business plan and are confident we can make the library self-sustaining in the long-run. But we need your help now. We are asking residents, friends and supporters to pledge a donation towards our target of 70K.
We need these pledges urgently - by September 7th when our proposal needs to be with All Souls College.
We will only collect a payment if our bid to All Souls is successful. If we are unsuccessful, you will not donate anything."
