The Budget

The Pier Review team believe in complete transparency, well maybe not complete transparency, but as you may have chipped in a few quid you think you should be able to see where the money is going. It’s a humbling thing to ask for any sort of financial help, especially in a country like ours where talking about money is the social equivalent of serving your balls on a plate next to the biscuits. We have raised £695 so far (and we are grateful for all your donations large and small)

Petrol: £296.03 (based on our back of an envelope maths)

Camping: £200.00 (at about £20 per night for 10 nights)

One night in Pontins: £50.00

One night in a B&B: £40.00

Big shop : £40.00 (so theres food in the car, monster munch, pot noodles, cheap vodka – road food)

Stamps and Postcards £40.00 (for postcards to the people that chose to pledge £50 or more, which to be honest, we only offered because we thought no one would do)

Expenses £140.00 (£10 per day between the three of us – to see end of pier shows, those slidey shelves two pence machines, fish suppers, novelty hats etc)

Total – £806.0

As you can see, we are just over a hundred pounds short, we have been amazed and astounded by all of your patience and generosity so far but could we ask for one more big push to get the Crowdfunder page in front of as many people as possible? Tweet the the link, talk about the project, and use your networks.
