We are currently trying to raise funds to help us mount both shows. We need posters, invitations, catalogues, photographs; to buy wine, refreshments, exhibition materials; make plinths; arrange gallery staff; transport; and so on. It’s a costly process and, in all, we require about £4,000. We’ve made a start, but have a mountain to climb and time is of the essence.
£100 or more from a corporate sponsor would be truly amazing but, equally, £50, £20 or just £10 from individuals would go a long way in enabling us to meet our target. We know some may be keen to help, but perhaps not in a position to offer financial support at this time. In that case, any ‘in kind’ donation would be most welcome (for example, print or PR services); or a special gift we could raffle or auction - chocolates, wine, jewellery, craft, fine art, objet d’art, food hamper, weekend break, round of golf, meal for two, tickets to events and so on. Is there anything you could donate?
Patrons will receive tickets to an exclusive VIP Private Viewing at the National Glass Centre on June 6th and be offered recognition in our printed publicity and PR (which will include local TV and radio nearer the time). Naturally, we fully understand not everyone will be in a position to help, but if you think you can (or perhaps know someone else who might), please let us know. Rest assured, every contribution will be warmly appreciated and put to good use. As we set out on our creative paths, a successful, professional end-of-degree show, here and in London, could be the perfect way to showcase our glass and ceramics talent.
Please email, text or call me for details of how to donate. And accept my sincere thanks, in anticipation!
