New Year update - 3rd January

Happy New Year!

The holiday season has meant that there has been a pause in the campaign but we now plan to start anew. We plan to draw more attention to the campaign and as a start we have contacted cinemas in Hull (Cineworld, Odeon and Vue) to gain publicity to coincide with the acclaimed film 12 Years a Slave due for release on Friday (10th January).

This is likely to be a major hit and provides the perfect opportunity to highlight the just cause that Wilberforce stood for and which we commemorate through the magnificent monument that we are trying to illuminate in the City.

As a result, Odeon at Kingston Park has kindly allowed our poster to be displayed in their foyer and I would urge any of you who see the poster to spread the words amongst your network of friends and family to help boost the campaign's funds.

We are continuing to contact key people and are looking to engage some notable local pillars of the community as patrons to the campaign.
