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 !
