The Road to Liberation - 29th December 1940


Good morning everyone


Just wanted to give a big shout out to the people that have been using the JWT Wish list for providing supplies. It will really help us in 2021 as the cost of maintenance and equipment is growing each year. As a non-profit run by volunteers, every donation makes a difference and gets us closer to opening some of our sites to the public. COVID permitting we hope to open Greve de Lecq Tower in 2021.


So a big thank you goes out to Clive and Vaughn who have bought equipment this month to help keep us going. We have also received some equipment but it was marked as anonymous, please feel free to reach out and let us know who you are so we can say thanks.


Have a good day!

thanks

Phil
