A crowdfunder campaign for the Memorial was launched in mid-October with £39,000 raised so far towards from private donations and £600 raised from grants. This will make it possible to commission technical drawings and an engineer’s certification, commission a site exploration, pursue planning permission and organise workshops to involve people in the project.
The total project budget of £167,773 will enable us to move forward with casting, fabrication and installation of the peace tree sculpture and granite bench and for a maintenance fund. That means we still need to raise just over £125,000.
We’re now seeking grant funding but we aim to raise another £20,000 towards that total in private donations.
