We have made a quick table of what we have spent so far on everything:
Venue: (£10 each)
£30 for the venue
£60 deposit (which we will get back)
£0 venue next door
Advertising: (£17.50 each)
£20.32 for vista print (small banner, 100 post cards, 25 magnets)
£99 for leaflets
£40.96 for printing cake sale and fundraising leaflets
In the Venue:
£0 Teas and cakes (shop on Albert Road)
£0 Teas and coffee (Tesco)
£0 4 chairs
This comes to a total of £250.28 (£27.80 each). I'm quite proud of that. Instead of asking for money we have managed to get a lot of free things or discounted things.
We are hoping to get around £60 or £70 from the bake sale and hopefully make a bit of profit from the pub quiz. We are thinking of having another bake sale at the start of December, both for publicity and to raise a bit more money. A lot still has to be done so we need to keep the discounts coming!
As part of my photography course, I have to track my development on a blog. The posts from September 2011 until January 2012 are part of a module called Project Management, for which I was required to work in a group of eight students to create an exhibition. The blog followed every step we took in order to create a successful gallery. The blog posts starting from September 2012 follow my final year on the course. I'll be documenting my research and analysis of my final year projects, as well as include notes of my Professional Practice unit - which prepares us for a range of post graduate options. Finally it also looks at a project called New Creatives, where I'll be working alongside an artists to help college students get more involved with art.
