Leith Hill Action Group – Newsletter 3 (1st March 2012)

Stop the Leith Hill oil drilling!

Hello and welcome to our third newsletter.  This newsletter is purely going to focus on LHAG’s financial situation.

A big thank you, firstly, to all of you generous people who have already made contributions.  Remarkably, most of these donations have been in excess of £100.  Three individuals have even handed over incredible sums of at least £1,000 each!  

We are grateful for every donation, regardless of size.  Every time we receive funds, it’s an endorsement that others care about this campaign too and it gives us all a boost to keep on going.  Every single donation received, no matter how small or large, makes us feel that all the hard work is worthwhile

And every single donation is crucial to our cashflow.   They have allowed the LHAG committee to appoint the barrister and have a number of constructive briefings with him. Great progress is being made and all of this has been paid for in full by your generous donations. 

But the hard work has just begun.  We are only about 10% of our way towards the fundraising target.  There is a lot more for the barrister to do, and we have to pay for the expert witnesses too.  Keeping the cashflow positive will be a constant battle.  So please help by making a donation now.  If we want to fight this, we all have to pull together.

There are a number of ways in which you can make a payment:

Donating by Direct Transfer

You can make a direct transfer to the LHAG account (name “Leith Hill Action Group”) using sort code 09-01-27 and account 3767 8874.  

Donating by Cheque

Make cheques payable to “Leith Hill Action Group” and send to:

Patrick Nolan, Head of LHAG Fundraising, Oak Lodge, Anstie Lane, Surrey, RH5 6HA. 

Donating by Credit Card, Debit Card or PayPal

New this week!  You can now donate by the card of your choice or even directly from your PayPal account by clicking the button below.  (Some email packages may not allow you to see/use this button without further intervention.  If this is the case, please visit the home page of our website where you will also be able to donate using this facility.)

However you donate, please do provide us with your name, address and email in case we have the chance to return surplus funds (contact details are below).

We are working hard organising money raising events and we’ll save those for later newsletters together with details about our objection or news on the latest developments.

Thanks for reading and thanks for your continued support.  It really is appreciated.
