Signed Slate Appeal (NOW CLOSED)

Posted: Monday 9th December 2019 by Emyr MWT

Here is a unique opportunity to have your very own slate with your name, or a loved one, a pet etc (an osprey?), inscribed onto it to be there for perpetuity.

Right folks, we're just about ready to install our reclaimed Penrhyn Welsh Slates on the roof of the Dyfi WIldlife Centre.

We have to be quick, Duncan will be slating from this Wednesday onwards.

As an optional extra, if you want us to email you a photograph of your slate in situ with your chosen name on it, taken with a professional camera and lens, just let us know.

It's a £50 donation per signed slate, press the link below and it will take you straight there; 100% of your donation will go directly to our Dyfi Wildlife Centre Appeal. Press the link below...

Signed Slate Appeal

If you pay tax in the UK would you also mind ticking the Gift Aid box? HMRC automatically add another 25% free of charge!

Once you're done, just email us with your chosen name for your slate and whether you'd like us to email you a high resolution image of your slate.

Many thanks :-)


UPDATE: An incredible 163 of you chose to have your own personalised Penrhyn Quarry slate with your inscription on for the Dyfi Wildlife Centre roof.

With Gift Aid, the slate appeal has raised a blistering £9,880 towards our DWC appeal.

Thank you so much.

We needed to find over £600,000 to match-fund our grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund; this morning we're down to just £40,000 more to get. A fantastic effort.

The slate appeal is now closed and as soon as Duncan has engraved the last few names on the slates he'll be putting them on the roof this week.

Your high resolution photograph will be emailed to you shortly afterwards.

Diolch yn fawr unwaith eto
