Hi Steve,

The domain registration for moveyourmoney.org.uk mentions "Bristol Credit Union Ltd".

What is its involvement in the project?

On that note, is the Association of British Credit Unions Ltd involved?

Given credit unions are potentially set to benefit from the campaign, couldn't they be providing funding?

Anyway, web savvy people (designers and developers) are proving a bottleneck at the moment. If after checking out the site, it seems it's something you agree with and you have a bit of spare time, we'd love you/your company to help out. Drop me an email off-list if you're interested.
