Just received a response from the University of Edinburgh Law School.
Thank you so much for your email and for your interest in the Neil MacCormick Sculpture fund. I am sorry it has taken the School so long to respond. We have recently moved buildings whilst our home is refurbished, but hopefully things are calming down now.
We are delighted that this worthy appeal is being heard so widely, and particularly by the wider MacCormick family. Thank you for posting the webpage on your blog. Any donations are much appreciated and I think donations from the wider MacCormick family are indeed appropriate and we would like to thank any who have already donated.
The campaign is going well, and we are now at a stage where the casts for the sculptures are finished and we are waiting on delivery of the jesmonite in order for the sculptor to start the final busts. As you will have seen from the website, two of the sculptures will frame the main entrance to the Law School when it is refurbished and we hope these will inspire our students, staff and visitors as they embark on their studies and work each day.
If you would like, I can send you updates of the campaign and some images of the final busts once they are complete to add to your blog?
I hope all is well and thank you again for your interest and help in promoting this campaign.
