However, because there is a lead time to make the necessary preparations, we would need to raise this amount by this weekend.
We are confident of doing so but, if for any reason we fall short of the £500,000 target, the fund will be donated to Help for Heroes. Similarly if we exceed the target any surplus will also be donated to the same charity.
For transparency, there is a 2.9% payment processing fee (which would total slightly under £15,000 for the entire fund) + 25p per individual donation. You can also leave GoFundMe a tip when donating if you wish, but this is entirely optional.
In summary, however you may have voted in the Referendum, this unique moment is unlikely ever to be repeated and if you would like to see it marked by the chiming of the most iconic timepiece in the world, please donate now.
Rebecca Ryan, founder of #StandUp4Brexit and Mark Francois MP
