Pro Dono was founded in 2010 by Duncan Turnbull and Glen Jeffries
under the leadership of Leslie Hill and Neil Record in order to
facilitate a new route to charitable donations: providing, arranging
and auctioning individualised experiences with public personalities in
exchange for sizeable donations to charities.
Since this time Pro Dono has raised 25,000 pounds, and found itself featured in The Independent and Financial Times and third sector media.
However, unfortunately, it has become increasingly apparent over the last twelve months that in order for the venture to progress significantly beyond its current size – namely, to develop into the well-recognised brand it can be – further more significant investment and knowledge is required in the areas of marketing and media.
The current team have reached the decision they do not have the correct combination of time and capital to take this key step. Consequently, with deep regret, we must announce that Pro Dono will not be trading for the foreseeable future; its service will be placed on hold.
We want to thank you for your interest, and state today that it is our hope to see Pro Dono back in some form in the future.
With kindest regards,
The Pro Dono team: Neil Record, Leslie Hill, Duncan Turnbull, Glen Jeffries, Ryan Halloran
