Thank you so much to all of our generous donors!
Our campaign to save Honresfield Library is gaining momentum: discussions continue with a number of philanthropists, and NHMF has now invited us to make a full application, which is being prepared for submission in August. Significant donations and pledges continue to be made.
The Media and Social Media are helping to raise wide awareness to our campaign here and overseas.
ITV News featured our campaign on 28 July, at the end of the 10pm News bulletin. There was also an article in the Daily Mail on Monday 19 July - recording the moment when Dr Richard Ovenden, head of the Bodleian Library, saw the collection in the 'flesh' last week - a Howard Carter experience!
It's fantastic, also, to have Stephen Fry's support: he has sent details of our campaign to his 12.4million twitter followers (see image below)
Our public appeal continues to attract many donations. We have now had a total of over £85,000 from over 900 people. This level of support is absolutely tremendous and will strengthen our case to philanthropists and grant-giving trusts.
