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. We also need help with some of the physical work.
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 a quarter of the project to be completed. Thank you to all of those local residents and others who have been so generous. 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'll also soon be able to donate using Virgin Money Giving. More information coming on that.
If you would like to be part of the team that makes it happen physically, helping with surface preparation and applying masonry paint, please join us at the tunnel on Mondays and Tuesdays. 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 well over 100 metres of tunnel to go!
Thank you for helping to make it happen
