JUMBO SOLD FOR £190,000

line

At the Allsop auction in London on 29th May 2014, Jumbo was sold to Mr Paul Flatman, a local poulty farmer.

We wish to say an immense THANK YOU to all our donors for their magnificent achievement of raising £40,000 (our maximum bid) in a mere four weeks. As promised, we have now returned these donations.

This demonstrates the huge depth of support that exists for our plans for the magnificent Jumbo.

We hoped that potential buyers would realise that no viable commercial development has yet been devised for Jumbo, but we recognised that some might wish to speculate.

We will continue to press for an end to 27 years of wanton neglect of this II* listed monument, and to oppose any development scheme which would damage Jumbo’s unique character.

We would welcome early contact with Jumbo’s new owner.

We are still accepting donations to go towards the general aims of our charity.
