Time is quickly passing with our Kickstarter appeal. With only 14 days to go we have now reached 25% of our target amount needed to continue making the film. People are asking us what is going to happen if we don't reach the full amount - well sadly with Kickstarter, if we don't get the full amount we get nothing, but we still have a few things up our sleeve to tempt people to pledge, so we still think we will get there. We are still positive! We are working on contingency plans though...the great thing about this is that whatever the outcome we have learnt a huge amount and we have managed to get the word out to a huge audience all the way around the world. So it is business as usual until further notice! We are heading off to Horton-in-Ribblesdale school, at the foot of the mighty Pen-y-Ghent, on Monday with Andy to film him giving the children the challenge to run the 268miles, and if there are any parents/friends etc out there who would like to be involved or go along then please get in touch with Andy!
The excitement of the kids is contagious, we are really looking forward to it, and they are great to film - they are so enthusiastic and love being part of the project. Next Tuesday, it is an about turn back to the Peak District where we will be filming at Edale primary school at the very beginning of The Pennine Way, and we will also be meeting a National Park Ranger - to interview and discuss the Pennine Way in more detail and get a real insiders view on life on and around the Pennine Way.
So watch this space for some more mini school films, competitions, and even maybe some goodies to be given away.
