We need £6,000 to get a good looking book with colour  illustrations  published.  This covers the cost of  proof reading, cover design, editing ,  typesetting, registration  and printing .

At present we are raising the money from my talks ,raffles   donations,  and advance sales of the book . Advance sales can be  a  ‘Donation’, or ‘Sale’ which will be refunded if the book , for some reason,does not get  published.

A small  support group has now been formed with a  Chairman , Secretary and Treasurer and we  have a Bank Account  with Nat West called Ojoliverbook.org.

More volunteers with fund raising experience welcome – you dont need to live nearby due to the wonders of technology .

The organisation has written clear articles of intent  to raise money for the book publishing and give a percentage of profits if any  ( after tax and expenses )  to a charity John would have approved of – an   Apprenticeship scheme in Boat Building for unemployed/ disabled people run by Faversham Creek Trust, or the RNLI.

Thank you  to so many  people for donations in  time , in kind , or money  to this project !
