We started our campaign to support Martin Durkin’s kickstarter project on Feb 1st and today an increased donation from the generous readers at the Talkshop pushed the total raised to the £100,000 target.
This is a people funded project to finance a project for the people. My heartfelt thanks to all at the Talkshop who have supported and assisted our contribution to making this happen.
I can now reveal that in addition to the total of £825 donated through Kickstarter, The talkshop has been instrumental in raising on ongoing amount in excess of £10,000.
Stephen Wilde has, in addition to the £500 he generously donated via the Talkshop, sponsored the co-producer slot with a further £5,000. We arranged to meet at Martin Durkin’s WAG TV company headquarters in London, where this shot was taken.
A further substantial sum has been donated by the music producer Kim Rose, who contacted me after being made aware of our fundraising project. Kim is the producer of the song which reached #8 in the Amazon music chart some time ago after it was adopted by the Leave.EU campaign as its anthem.
Martin is going to use ‘Let The River Run’ in the movie and Kim, a long time Brexit campaigner, is generously donating proceeds to the ‘Brexit The Movie’ project.
Our campaign has been a huge success. The movie is now well into its production phase, and thanks to Martin’s kindness, six talkshoppers who have donated will be able to attend the premiere and after-show party in May this year. Let me know whether you can make it to London if you want to be one of them. We will send a Tee-shirt or badge to those who have donated but can’t make the journey. The Talkshop name will also appear on the movie credits!
Well done everyone!
