This afternoon Dandy Chrissy and I collected a large £200 cheque from Waitrose. In September people in Norwich could donate to the Norwich Dandies by placing tokens in Community Matters boxes in various Waitrose supermarkets. Many thanks if you were one of the people who put a token in our box!
The money will help us apply for more funding. Most funding bodies want you to have a certain amount of match-funding when applying for grants, which can be difficult if you're promoting wacky community art. The Dandies are now busy making plans for one or more events next year.
