Don’t forget that you can leave a lasting legacy of your support by leaving a gift for The People’s Mosquito Ltd. in your will. It would be great if you could tell us about it so that we can ensure your wishes are met, especially if you have a specific idea for the way in which the gift is to be used.
Our first target is £50,000 which will fund the fabrication of a complete set of Mosquito wing ribs – these form the skeleton of the wing (see illustration below and for more detail see our post “The People’s Mosquito is cutting wood!“). The wing ribs are scheduled to be cut from Canadian Spruce and various plies by our partners Aerowood Ltd. in Auckland, New Zealand, in due course.
Grand Launch Draw
To celebrate our fundraising campaign launch we are holding a Grand Launch Draw (well, we had to give it an whizzy-sounding name didn’t we?). The draw relates to the first tranche of fundraising of £50,000.
We have 50 splendid wooden key-rings that have been cut from the same wood as RL249‘s wing ribs. These have been cut and stamped with our logo by Aerowood Ltd exclusively for our fundraising effort, and will not be offered for sale at any time. So this is a chance to own something exclusive to The People’s Mosquito.
The rules of the draw are simple: for every £10 you donate you will be automatically entered into our Free Grand Launch Draw. (Figures will be rounded down – so £100 will earn you ten entries to the draw, £25 will earn you two entries, and so on.) The draw will take place once we have reached our target. Once a name has been drawn, that name will be removed before the next draw is made. If you wish to enter the draw without donating, please submit your name and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org
