A CHARITY has been left £2,200 out of pocket after an estimated 2,500 people watched the demolition of the three Didcot power station cooling towers from Wittenham Clumps last Sunday.
The Earth Trust spent £4,000 providing stewards for parking, tea and coffee and temporary toilets, free of charge. But chief executive Jayne Manley said only £1,800 had been received in donations and the organisation is now appealing to the public for help.
She said: “When we found out the demolition was happening we thought people would want to be on the Clumps, which have the best view across the landscape. It was an amazing atmosphere on the day, but at the moment we are out of pocket.”
