Nancy Doyle is helping us with fund raising. We are very excited and grateful to announce that she has chosen PASA for funding by Virgin to help pay our overheads of this website and book-keeping. We are now in receipt of this vital support from Virgin money. This is is vital prime the pump funding and so helpful and encouraging, at this early stage of our development.
Richard Broderick has donated three fine pieces of garden ceramics for our art auction planned for the spring (details pending).
This auction creates an opportunity for artists to help PASA by donating a work of art to help fund a stand against the insect crisis through education and environmental action. We have also been donated a poster by David Tremlett which is very exciting and it will have a tremendous ceramic section. Early days but we are already confident that that it is a good idea and will soon have an exhibition of artworks on this website.
