Polly Attwood became the First individual donor to the campaign to open the next Hypatia Trust Study Centre in the stables of the municipal gardens in Penzance, Cornwall.
In September 2015, taking flight from Land’s End Airport, Hypatia international director Polly, with the skilled assistance of her ‘sky-daddy’ made a courageous skydive to raise funds for her two favourite human rights causes – the Concord-Carlisle Human Rights Council (Massachusetts, USA) and our own Hypatia Trust. To each she made a truly handsome donation of £500, and we are so grateful! This will join the funds raised at our first corporate fundraiser hosted with the Friends of Morrab Gardens at Trevelyan House prior to Christmas 2014, when we raised an equivalent sum from our Doll Exhibition and sale.
More about this soon when the surveyors and architects have been chosen for the project. Meantime, thank you Polly for your heaven-sent donation, and all the friends of Polly who made her (very scary) jump worthwhile.
