There was a very good response from “older warm bodies” to the degree that one lady also made a donation of $25.
This donation was in fact to be the Trusts’ start up money.
Volunteers started to spend time at the Craters sitting in their cars and soliciting, not very successfully, for donations.
We didnt really have a visibility and effective presence there (though the security was there)
A rethink was necessary
The constant break-ins caused local solicitor Jeremy Nash great concern.
He consulted the local news paper and radio station and ran a promotion seeking volunteers offering to sit in their cars in the car park, thereby maintaining passive security during daylight hours.
