Better luck next time.

Thank you very much to everyone who voted for us in the Aviva Community Fund. We made it to the final round but unfortunately we were unsuccessful in receiving any funds. As with all funding schemes we apply for, competition is tough so we just have to keep on trying.

Thank you once again for all your support.
