I have been advised by many people to try and crowdfund to cover some or all of my legal costs. I have been reluctant to do this until now but the costs are increasing daily. The problem is that I have no idea what the total could be but we’re talking several thousand pounds and possibly as much as between £10,000 and £15,000.
If they insist on a full hearing in October then the costs will increase again and, if they find against me, I plan to appeal to the Sheriff Principal. The costs of this are unknown.
What I hope to do is see if I can raise some funds with your help. What I will do is publish all my legal costs to date and from now on. If I exceed the total raised, I will donate the balance to Mary’s Meals, an Argyll based charity with global reach. Have a look at the work they do at: https://www.marysmeals.org.uk/
