Having worked as an unpaid volunteer since 2013 to build the new Village website and launch the social media feeds, this network has now grown to include over 4,000 followers on Facebook, up to 120,000 post reach a month, a newsletter reaching around 850 and 37,600 page views on the website this year.
As surprising as this may seem I spend a minimum of three hours a day managing it all. Thankfully, many of the fantastic businesses in the Village have supported me in order that I can support them. However, this merely covers annual costs, eg web hosting. I’m still devoting all my time as a volunteer.
Can you Support the Headcorn Village Network?
If all newsletter subscribers donated just £2 this would secure the network survival for two years.
Those who are able to donate £10 donation will receive a Limited Edition ‘Supporting Headcorn’ Jute Shopping bag, while stocks last. (Free delivery within 5 miles of Headcorn, chargeable elsewhere, confirmed separately)
To ensure this survives it needs wider support. So, if you are able, I am inviting everyone to support it through donations. Even the smallest contribution can make a difference. Perhaps you can donate £2 or a little more. If you are able to donate £10 you will receive a Limited Edition 'Supporting Headcorn Village' Jute Bag. This is made from sustainable, renewable and biodegradable jute. There are just a few left!
