First of all, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated to the meets. So far we have raised £345.17 from you. These donations have gone a long way to supporting our meet activities. And, we would like to update you on some of our purchases.
The organisers do not earn any money from Birmingham Furs. We are all volunteers, and we are all furs like you. 100% of the money goes to the meets, or is saved up to buy bigger and better items.
We started a separate Birmingham Furs budget in June 2016, to coincide with our first donation round. This allowed us to buy a small inventory of equipment, which we use each meet. The organisers approve all of these purchases collectively. The items are:
We also purchased some ‘consumable’ items during the year. These include:
We also use some items acquired before June 2016. These include:
So now you know where your money goes! Of course, we’re open to suggestions for what to buy next. And in the meantime, if you’d like to drop us another penny or two – the address is www.paypal.me/Brumfurs
