Where will the crowdfunded money be spent?

The £115k is a figure provided by an independent business advisor who suggested this would be the figure required to ensure we would be able to get things up and running from a standing start. This did not take into account any form of volunteering or donations. It includes staffing costs through January and February, buy back figures from the insolvency practitioners, insurances, legal fees, lease payments and a number of elements from the list below.

Currently no money that has been donated has been spent and until we have the trustees in place the money from the just giving page will not be drawn down.
Money spent at this point has been donated from the team of volunteers working daily to get things up and running.

Can we also thank everyone who has donated both time and money over the past couple of weeks. It has been an intense period with so much happening and the level of support from people has been incredible.

If anyone wants more information or would like to offer any support then please contact the LS-TEN team.
