Plymouth fundraising

Following last week’s ‘FlyPlymouth’ open meeting more details have emerged of the group’s fundraising activities. The group has raised just under £18,000 in the two weeks since the campaign started and is well on track to meet the targeted £75,000 it requires to fund the next 12 month’s activities.

FlyPlymouth chief executive Raoul Witherall told supporters that efforts to see Plymouth airport safeguarded and reopened are entering what might be the last 12 months of a six-year campaign.

The city council’s draft Plymouth Plan that sets out to safeguard the airport will undergo an Examination in Public next summer with the inspector’s final decision expected a year from now. “That gives us an important 12-month run-in during which time we will be working harder than ever to put together the team, the funding to deliver our plan to acquire and reopen Plymouth airport,” Witherall said.

“We have a clear vision of what we want to achieve and a clear understanding of what we need to do to deliver it,” he added.

Tomorrow (Tuesday 11 October) the group is inviting local business leaders to a forum at Plymouth School of Creative Arts (from 19:00).
