Wording for email[edit | edit source]

Over the last year Wikimedia UK has grown and matured into a functioning chapter and we are actively trying to free knowledge in the UK through the 9 Wikimedia Projects that we support. Following on from our successful fundraiser which resulted in £40,000 of donations. Wikimedia UK wants to look forward and expand the chapter so that we can continue with the momentum we have built up over the past year.

Given the close ideals that there are between Wikimedia UK and the Open Knowledge Foundation, we feel that strengthening the relationship between the two organisations would be in both our interests.

We would like to invite supporters of the Open Knowledge Foundation to become members of Wikimedia UK to support us in our mission of disseminating knowledge freely both in the uk and accross the globe.
