>9th May update

>Hello all

Thought it was time to bring you up to date, Derek and I have been working hard raising funds and I have listed the current financial position below and although optimistic are running out of time. I have copied Dave Gray of Radio Orkney into this e-mail hoping he would be kind enough in one of his broadcasts to give an update to the public letting them know the situation and requesting further pledges to the cause (imposing on his good nature!).

I have also copied in Cheryl Campbell from the Orcadian who has given us the exposure so far and Craig Taylor from Orkney Today who keeps in touch regularly with me at Kirkwall Airport. I am also ever hopeful that the Orkney Media Group may be interested in making a contribution to this unique event.
