Appeal Reaches Half Way

We’ve announced today that we’ve reached that all-important half way mark.  £500,000 in just over a month.  The interest has been great, with articles in a number of national and local newspaper as well as the BBC website.  I’ve been kept busy doing radio interviews this morning.

Over the last exciting month, tt’s been really heartening to see how people throughout Britain and beyond have cared enough about the future of beautiful places to help by dipping into their pockets to help.  As I keep on saying: every penny donated moves us closer to securing Llyndy Isaf for future generations.

We are so grateful to Katherine Zeta Jones for her support for the appeal.  It would be wonderful if she would one day be able to follow the lead of her compatriot Sir Anthony Hopkins, and see the results of her support.  Anthony Hopkins  helped us secure Snowdon and Hafod y Llan farm back in 1998 and visited on a number of occasions.

If you are new to this blog, you can find out more about Llyndy Isaf by looking through the posts below – there are articles and pictures that will help you appreciate what this wonderful place has to offer.  If you want to be kept informed of new posts about how the appeal is doing, just click the ‘sign m up’ button on the right.

  1. I wonder if anyone has considered an art auction as we might not be able to offer a cash donation but maybe a piece of work for auction
    I am sure that so many artists have used the lake for inspiration and could be encouraged to donate work towards the appeal

    • Hi Angela,

      What a great idea! I’ve also been contacted by a local artist who wishes to donate a painting to the appeal. Keep in touch with the blog to see if anything comes of this.
