During my drive home from Rhyl and over the last couple of days, I’ve been reflecting on the wonders of my recent mission, coming to terms with the ever stronger effect my project seems to be having on the people I meet along the way.
It’s reached a point where lifeboat volunteers are often so moved and engaged by the new history we’re making together that I’ve been determinedly asked on several occasions, “How can we help you to keep going?” I’m always astounded by that as the crews have already given me so much. But my answer to them is the same as it is to you:
This project is my brainchild and nobody has commissioned me. It’s funded by my followers and supporters in all kinds of ways, people like you.
Like the lifeboat volunteers, you can help me spread the word by sending people to my website (profile link) to find out all about the project and how to support it.
But remember that retweets, likes and shares don’t fund my work on their own. I need as many people as possible to take the extra step of buying a print, some merchandise or becoming a patron.
The latter is much cheaper than many people realise. You can pledge as little as one pound per month. For three pounds per month, you can access a raft of podcasts and videos in my patron-only posts...and you’ll have your name printed in the final book!
In a topsy turvy world, that’s how you’ll be able to keep enjoying this unique good news story I’m making with the incredible lifeboat volunteers, the people who save lives at sea in all weathers and at all times of day.
As always, thank you for reading, following and for all your support over the last few weeks. More soon!
