Planetarium Project

Written by Chris Dakin on .

We’re raising money to build a Planetarium on the land next to our Observatory so that we can expand and enhance our astronomy education outreach activities.

If you do any shopping online and would like to help us raise some funds, at no cost to yourself, please register to support us at Easyfundraising. For information about how Easyfundraising works, watch this Youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sn2dsQGAe_w

If you want to get involved, follow this link: http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/invite/PJMHKU/, create an account and choose “Sherwood Observatory Planetarium” as the Cause to support, and we’ll get an extra £1 donated to the fund when you make your first Easyfundraising purchase.

Also, if you're searching the internet, why not use Easysearch instead of your usual search engine and every result clicked will earn half a penny for our fund. It might not sound like much, but think of how many times you search the internet each day...all those halfpennies soon mount up. This is the Easysearch link: http://sherwoodobserv.easysearch.org.uk/
