remember when FV3805 Restoration Project kickstarter page said the project wasn't funded? Well...
The project was completely funded outside Kickstarter!
Jon Hinchliffe, the owner of The Wight Military & Heritage Museum and who gave the "Baroness" to the place was so overwhelmed by the amount of people that turned up on the first volunteering day and the sheer amount of support you gave through the internet that he decided to finance the project! He sold one of his properties and the whole machine is now paid for!
|First Volunteering Group. :)
It has been decided that there will be assigned volunteering days for each month, the dates will be given soon. Note that no specific skills are required but if you have them then even better!

Thank you everyone that has been supportive through this few months! This is just the beginning! :)
