Strong Start To Foxearth Appeal

2 July 2014, Comments Comments Off on Strong Start To Foxearth Appeal

A deluge of donations has dropped on the doormat at A Rocha UK since the launch of the Foxearth appeal. ‘But there’s still a way to go to set up our own nature reserve,’ said CEO Mairi Johnstone.

‘So far it’s one of the best appeals ever,’ Mairi explained. ‘We’re genuinely humbled by the response – especially against a backdrop of a challenging financial climate.’

The appeal was launched at the end of May, to raise funds for what is set to become A Rocha UK’s first ever nature reserve. Generous donations were received within the first few weeks, along with messages of support such as:

– ‘we do hope this goes well, it sounds very exciting’;

– ‘so excited to hear about Foxearth’;

– ‘Foxearth…fabulous place!’

After reading all the emails and letters from supporters, Mairi expressed her delight at the response so far for funds to buy what she called an ‘amazing’ piece of land. ‘It’s quite clear that people have responded because they absolutely believe in the vision,’ she explained.
