We need YOUR help to make it happen
As it says in the headline, we need your help to make it happen. Most of all, we need donations to help us fund the artists’ costs, school and community workshops, paint and materials, and all of the costs that are associated with creating what will be Scotland’s longest historic and heritage mural.
Do you bank with Virgin Money and use their Edinburgh Lounge in St Andrew's Square? If so, we are one of three charities being featured from now until the end of December. Please vote for us to increase our chance of being awarded £2,000. Ask your friends and contacts too!
Please help us to make it happen
The total project cost is just under £100,000. We already have some grants which have enabled us to make a start and will enable almost half of the project to be completed. Thank you to all of those local residents and others who have been so generous - see our homepage for details of the grant-making bodies and Trusts who have supported us. We are actively asking for more from Trusts and corporate donors and will be making a further local appeal, but we need your help too!
Please send your cheque to: The Colinton Tunnel, 10 Allermuir Road, Edinburgh EH13 0HE. Completing and returning the Gift Aid Declaration (link is at the foot of this page) will add a further 25% to your donation.
You can also donate using Virgin Money Giving. Just click on the red button below:
If you would like to be part of the team that makes it happen physically, helping with surface preparation and applying masonry paint, please come and help. Bring overalls if you have them, or clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and/or paint splattered. We'll supply gloves, goggles, dust masks, etc. Work has started already (see Facebook - thecolintontunnel), but there's still plenty of tunnel to go! Use the Facebook link or email to contact us.
Thank you for helping to make it happen
