We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in our application to the Clare Milne Trust to help us fund the purchase of our new tractor.
This means that, thanks to the match funding from crowd-funder and pledges we can fully fund this purchase in the coming weeks. It really will revolutionise how we can manage our lovely big site and also, how many unique experiences we can offer our young people and adults in a training environment.
We would not have been successful in our application to Clare Milne, were it not for the generous support of donors thus far, so we continue to express our gratitude to everyone who has supported us in our fund-raising efforts to replace our old Kubota mini-tractor.
We want to extend a huge thank you to all of the lads at RZT who took on the perilous task of entirely stripping our existing tractor to its bare bones, cleaning, checking and replacing parts without charging any labour costs. Doing this was a risk we simply could not have afforded to take without their generosity and they have put new parts in to make it run and keep us with a tractor until we have raised enough funds to get the new tractor we need. THANK YOU RZT!
It won’t be long until we’re posting a picture of our shiny new tractor. We hope that by Apple Day (Saturday October 8th) we will be able to showcase it and fulfil some of our Crowd-fund promises, so watch this space!!
Thanks again to all our supporters.
