It was an amazing 1st week - we raised 29% of our total in just one week and maintained momentum through the week. It felt amazing and massively validating for the whole team!

We were also top 20 on the VOOM table and climbing, although admittedly there weren't that many entries!

Surely crowdfunding was easy??

Well, not amazingly easy. It's great fun but also hard work!! In the midst of jobs or exams our young team spent their time emailing, posting, tweeting, and generally hassling anyone we could to get us towards that magical finishing line! 

Luckily it continued to work - taking us from 29% to 68% by the end of April. Getting us a decent amount of press coverage as we did so:
