National Trust Scotland crowdfunded £12,496 from 321 on Just Giving to restore the water wheel at the historic Preston Mill in East Lothian.
This was National Trust Scotland’s first crowdfunding campaign. They aimed to raise £12,000 to repair the broken water wheel at Preston Mill. This water wheel was iconic in the hit TV show Outlander and plays an important part in Scottish heritage.
We worked with National Trust Scotland on a consultancy basis to prepare their crowdfunding page text, imagery and social media posts for this campaign.
They reached 2/3 of their goal after just 48 hours and also secured £4,000 in match funding. They reached their goal in under 3 weeks and closed their campaign early due to their successes. Watch their video below:Visit the National Trust Scotland crowdfunding page here
