The ODT article has proved to be extremely beneficial.
WELL, a Dunedin Primary Health Organisation, has made contact and we are in the process of drafting a sponsorship deal.
A local law firm, gallaway cook allan has generously offered its services to draft the documents to register PitWR (NZ) as a charitable trust and with the Charities Commission. Becoming a charity means we will be eligible to seek funding from a greater number of organisations.
The Janet Frame Literary Trust is making a donation and an ODT reader has also made a generous contribution.
Our funding application to the DCC small project grant scheme has also been successful.
So great news for PitWR. With such strong support behind this project I feel confident the poetry cards have a long term future in Dunedin.
Right now it’s time for me to start planning the winter card. I always seem to be working a season ahead of myself!
