Our beloved Bridge remains closed but we have had some good news on the final funding position. The Trust has to find $100,000 to fund an Options Appraisal Report which if satisfactory will be the basis for Scottish Government Grant Aid. With the other beach in Lossiemouth now also closed there is an even greater need to try to raise the funds to keep momentum on our Bridge Campaign.
The involvement of the GlobalGiving Network has been pivotal in our Campaign. To date we have been donated over $12,000 and the support continues to come in. From this small coastal community in the North East of Scotland we cannot thank our Worldwide Audience enough. Whilst we have along way to go, without the GlobalGiving team support we would be unable to continue in any realistic timescale.
We cannot thank you all enough and would ask you consider our campaign as part of your Worldwide Charitable Giving
Sad news on our Save the Bridge Campaign......The Bridge span broke in August and the Bridge is now closed. We have no ccess to the East Beach ans so no-one has been on the Beach for 2 months now, apart from the very dedicated walkers. We are in the process of trying to support Government Funding to get the Bridge replaced but this will take a long time. We continue to try to raise funds from private individuals to advance the reports needed to move this vital town project forward. The help of all those on Global Giving continues to be a tremendous level of support and financial help. Please continue if you can, no sumis too little
The Save Our Bridge Campaign goes from strength to strength. The project needs to raise in excess of $1M so there is much to do but with the help of Global Giving we are raising finance from a variety of sources.
Here in Lossiemouth we have been carrying out a number of community events in aid of the Bridge funds. We have had a classical music concert which went very well. Our annual Gala week supported the Bridge and was a great success. There is obviously a lot of interest locally in the Bridge and we have had a steady stream of financial gifts from all sorts of people, young and old, locals and visitors alike. It is very heartwarming to see such generosity
We are awaiting our first donations from Global Giving which will greatly swell our funding pot. An anonymous Benefactor living in the US gifted us $6,000 dollars which has been matched by his company, a huge sum which will make material change. We have also had some support from other Global Givers which has resulted in us about to recieve over $12,400. The support from Global Giving participants is significant and greatiously received here in Lossiemouth. We go out of our way to let our people know about the generosity GG is showing. Any support you can offer to our continueing campaign is greatly appreciated and I can assure you all sums received go towards replacing the Bridge. We are all volunteers and take no reward for our efforts other than the satisfaction that we are making a difference
