News archive: Getting All The Ducts In A Row – The First Sponsor Names Go On The Duct

June 2nd, 2012

Last week saw the launch of the latest B4RN fundraising exercise. In response to comments received from people stating that they would like to contribute to the B4RN project but the minimum share purchase of £100 is too much, we have introduced a sponsorship scheme where people can sponsor a metre (or more), of fibre duct.

This has proved extremely popular and after only one week has seen donations coming from all over the world, UK, Holland, France, Belgium and the USA to name a few. On sponsoring, a name can be nominated that will be written on the duct and photographed before being buried in the ground for ever.

There have been children’s names, company names, even BT Executives nominated! The first of these have gone on the duct in that last few days. We have received some extremely supportive messages from people donating that reinforces that fact that B4RN is doing the right thing.

Many, many thanks to all who have contributed so far. Please keep the donations and messages coming.

Stories from out in the field from our very happy customers

One residential customer in Over Kellet used to know whether it was worth firing up her computer by looking out of her front window to see what the weather was doing with her telephone line.

It has allowed us to improve our farm business through the implementation of Wi-Fi heat detection ankle bands on our herd, and thus improving our business productivity.

OMG it is amazing! I don’t want to go back to London, which was faster than here, but not now! Just to say a BIG THANK YOU to all you guys, what a great thing you are doing. I’m shocked not everyone is signing up!
Customer in Norfolk
After lambing 1300 ewes a good film is what I want to watch and because we have B4RN that is no problem. Just enables me and my family to get on.
