We made it to our minimum! This means the project can go ahead as planned - fantastic news. Gratias maximas to everybody who has supported us. We're now into our final weekend, and every additional pound enables us to do even more: send more students, keep the equipment at the cutting edge, help meet staff expenses. Spread the word for one final push!

One week to go and we're within shouting distance! Many thanks to all supporters. Please note that to help with the final push the Friends have offered **additional** matching funds pound for pound until we reach our minimum of £13,000. Maybe a small top-up?
