GREAT NEWS!   THE NEW ENGINES HAVE ARRIVED

Yes…this is good news, as we race forward to have Duyfken back sailing on the Swan River by Friday, 1st December !
 
It’s quite a large jigsaw puzzle as you’d expect, but each week we tick another box in the project.
 
From a $$ and cents perspective we’re not there yet.  
 
Here’s the latest.  We have so far raised $32,110 of our target of $120,000 - so $87,890 to go.

  

 

 To date, 157 individual donations have been received via our Crowdffunding campaign, with donations ranging from $25 to $10,000.

Good news received today is that the Australian National Maritime Museum will be adding $11,000 to our total, so that pushes the figure to $43,110.
 

 

 

Now the job IS NOT done.  We are still asking for your $$$ to HELP push the total along.
 
This is all about many hands reaching out, not leaving it to someone else to do the ‘chipping’ in.

I make the point again - there is no big cheque coming from the State Government, nor is there likely to be a big insurance payout.
 
So there it is.
 
I leave it with you to make the choice of whether to support this MOST IMPORTANT of fund raising efforts or simply leave it to others to do the ‘lifting’.
 
A reminder once again is that your donation is 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE, so you can give the $$ to the Duyfken Foundation or that mob in Canberra – I know where I’d feel more confident in how the money will be used!!

Thank you in advance of your donation.
