The total income after we receive the final instalment from Bristol City Council will be £5,173.03. Of this we spent £3,982.87. The cost of the memorial itself, including installation, was £3,932.50.
This will leave us with the sum of £1,190.16 for maintenance and improvement to the memorial site area.
The £1,190.16 will be kept in with the FoSAP current account, but treated as ring-fenced funding.
