Fundraising for the Friends of Sun Rising
Creating a capital fund is one of the primary objectives of the Friends of Sun Rising at this point.
The menu to the right leads you to pages about our various current projects, including honey from Sun Rising bees, greetings cards made of photographs taken at Sun Rising, a simple coffin made of recycled cardboard with the Friends logo hand-painted on it, and an idea for a calendar of your own photographs of the site.
The spring posey of wildflowers shown here is similar to many donated by Naomi of Wilderness Wildflowers to sell in aid of the Friends at our Open Weekend.
At Sun Rising we also aim to have a number of events through the course of the year, such as music recitals or talks, held in the Roundhouse, for which donations are asked or tickets sold.
In May 2012 international violinist Steve Bingham gave us a wonderful afternoon, playing in the Roundhouse from his broad repertoire, all proceeds going towards the Friends. Thank you, Steve!
If you know of anyone who would be willing to play, perform or share their expertise in aid of the Friends, do let us know. We'd be keen to hear from musicians, singers, choirs, storytellers, poets, naturalists, historians, and more ...
Other fundraising ideas are always welcome - let us know.
