    The SMILE reward

    This is a 'just because you love it!' pledge.
    You can donate any amount from £3.
    We appreciate that not all backers will be wanting anything as reward, other than the warm, fuzzy feeling of having been instrumental in helping this get off the ground.
    Your reward for this one then, folks, is a great big wide smile from us...and no doubt from every person who will benefit from the facility, should it meet target.
    Why £3? We worked out that in an ideal world, should every one of our Facebook followers donate £2.86, we would reach target straight away! We liked that idea, and as pledges are rounded to the nearest £1...£3 became that ultimate SMILE figure!
