Twenty pounds is all you need
to help this trust to succeed.
Twenty pounds every year
to help us finish, never fear
we will succeed, but it's slog,
and soon we will have an update blog,
Progress may seem a little slow
but we'll get there as I am sure you know.
If you would join us today
and that twenty pounds you pay
join us via the contact link
and there it's done, in just a blink.
Thank you
