Donald Dinnie Day, The Gathering VII

Donation protected
Dear friends in the stone lifting community. We have started work on our 7th annual Donald Dinnie Day Gathering. The last 6 events since 2017 have been amazing and have produced some memorable and truly historic moments. Every year we try and bring in more features and events to grow the event and pay tribute to those who blazed the trail before us and share the history of some of the world’s most famous historic stones. To date the Gathering committee has funded the event privately as we have no external income (other than the fantastic prizes and tshirts kindly donated by our sponsors) but we do have a strong drive and passion to see the event grow and continue. Unfortunately we cannot sustain this for this year’s event and are reaching out to you the stone lifting community to help us fund this year’s event. In the background we are working hard to secure financial sponsorship for the long term so we would only see this happening once. We have opened a GoFundMe account and are sharing it via the website and our social media etc. Our target is to raise £1,500 by the end of June 2023. 100% of all funding received will go towards running the event. Thank you in advance for your support and help in growing and maintaining our wonderful historical culture. The Gathering is an important event which keeps alive the traditions of old and we really want to ensure that it keeps going. As a community we have the power to work together to achieve that.

With our deepest gratitude

The Gathering Committee
