“To be honest with you, we never thought you’d do it,” said many, after we’d smashed our Crowdfunder target. But after 89 days almost 1,000 people together had raised more than £125,000 but more than that, they had raised the spirit of a city and beyond.
It was a hard ask! We had less than 400 days to find the money, the sculptor and the team to raise the first state of the first woman to take her seat in the UK Parliament. And we did it. A city rose; female parliamentarians rose; relatives of those first voters rose. And the donations flooded in.
We all look forward to the day of special events on November 28th, leading up to the unveiling and beyond. Thank you so much!
