The National Trust for Jersey is delighted to announce that it has secured £2m in pledges to safeguard Plémont for ever and for everyone. Islanders have made donations and pledges ranging from £10 to £250,000, and what they all share in common is a true desire to secure our coastline from inappropriate development.
Celia Jeune, President of The National Trust for Jersey, commented:
The Trust has made a commitment to the States of Jersey to purchase Plémont for the sum of £2m and we are enormously grateful to everyone who has helped us reach this significant milestone. Compared to the £1.2m currently being raised by the National Trust to acquire 1.35 km of coastline along the White Cliffs of Dover, we have every reason to be truly proud as an Island of our immense achievement to date. Everyone at the National Trust is truly astounded by the generosity and support we are receiving.
Although we still need to raise £1.1m to cover the costs of demolition we hope that the current momentum will continue up to the date of the States debate on the 4th December. In the meantime we would continue to urge people to send their Love Plemont cards to their respective States members and go to our website loveplemont.je to see how they can help.
If we truly work together I am confident that our long held vision of securing this wonderful area of coastline for the Island may well become a reality.
