    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    David Smythe, Emeritus Professor of Geophysics, University of Glasgow has kindly agreed to make a technical representation to the the EA on Europa’s permit application on behalf of A Voice For Leith Hill. This crowdfunding initiative is to cover his baseline costs: for approx 15 days work on research, analysis and write-up that would normally be charged at £1000/day.

    In his professional experience of accessing drill sites for the oil industry, he says he would never have advised Europa to drill on Leith Hill - and that’s before considering the vital water issues. With 15 years experience at the British Geological Survey, as a geophysicist he has the overview which will compliment the other reports currently being commissioned by hydrogeologists.
