Huge thanks are due to everyone involved in making the Thursday 3rd’s Spring Fling a glorious party and a massive fundraising success — and to everyone who came and made it the fun celebration that it was. We raked in over £1100, which has put the campaign pot over the £17,000 mark — well on the way to our target of £50,000 by June 1st, though we’re still going to have to work very hard.
Saturday 5th also saw a diverse and widely-attended public meeting as part of the whole campaign relaunch. Over 30 Forest people — enthusiasts and new faces — gathered to hear the latest updates, offer their skills, and come up with new ideas for the campaign. We’re bubbling with energy and drive, and you can be part of that too. See below for the latest on how to get and stay involved, and in the mean time stay tuned for news of an exciting art auction in May, and spectacular plans for the Festivals, as well as a host of other Forest goodness.
Be Part of The Campaign
Forest believes in people being empowered to do things autonomously. If you have a campaign idea you’d like to pursue, go for it! But if you want a hand making something happen, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We particularly would like to hear from
people with media experience, or who are willing to help with being a street flyering team in the future.
We’re also stronger when we’re organised together, so we’re having regular fortnightly Forest Campaign Team meetings. The next will be on Tuesday 15th March, 5-7pm, upstairs at Forest, and everyone who’s involved in the campaign is welcome.
