mydonateA huge thank you to everyone who supported the 'PETTATHON' fundraising marathon in October. Thanks to your generosity and support we topped over £7,000 in two weeks! What an immense morale raiser! Now, to press forward towards our ambitious 2012-2013 target of £50,000. To ensure we can continue to do the work we've been reporting on, and even grow it, we are holding a PETiTATHON on the last Friday of each month. SO...

Welcome to PETiTATHON #02 December 2012!

With all the usual Features:

"What has PETT ever done for me?" - 'Review of the Year 2012...': If this is what we've seen in 2012, just imagine the paddling going on underneath!

"PETT Showcase" - 'Twelve Days of Christmas (with an Archival Twist)...' – Sing-along-a-Matt, as he takes us on his inimitable musical tour of some of the year's new accessions

"Guest Blog" - 'A quarter of a century: Thank you” by Craig Fees. Going full circle and finding yourself a thousand miles further on the way.

"Favourite Photographs" - 'Should Old Acquaintance Be Forgot'. No, these are not all of the friends we have lost this year - Ronald St. Blaize-Molony, and John Armstrong, for example; but these are extended members of the team who have actively shared in our events and adventures of the year, and leave us richer and poorer simultaneously


We are very grateful for your new and ongoing support!

If anything in this staccato campaign touches a chord or indicates that we are deserving of your support - which we are! - , please use our 'BT Mydonate' page to add your £10, £20, £50, £150 (hey - £15,000 - go for it!) to that of others. BT MyDonate itself does not take anything out of what you give, although your credit or debit card will make a small charge.

Or, cheques can be sent to PETT, Barns Centre, Church Lane, Toddington near Cheltenham, Glos. GL54 5DQ. If you are a U.K. tax payer, Gift Aiding your donation will (still) add 25% in value to your gift without any additional cost to you (or to us!).

An indication of the cost of work and activities here, and how your contribution can have a direct impact, is on our 'Sponsor a...' page:

Finally, we apologise if this communication is unwelcome, and if you don't wish to receive future 'Pettitathons', communications or updates from us,please let us know and we'll take you off our mailing/email list immediately.
