AS SOMEONE who has supported the Bluebird Project at both the Ruskin Museum and the rebuild project for many years - having raised money by giving talks about Bluebird and Donald Campbell to many organisations - can I, through your newspaper, ask this question of all parties?

What do I say to future audiences that I visit when I am asked how much of a donation they should give, and what are they giving it for?

I thought we were all volunteers working for the same cause in order to bring Bluebird back to Coniston. I am not sure that I can in future ask people to give to continued confrontation.
