Weʼre raising £60,000 to Complete the bronze of King George in Ramsgate Harbour
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Dominic Grant, local artist and acclaimed sculptor, initiated the creation of a larger than life sized statue off George IV in 2018
Dominic was keen to leave his own legacy to Ramsgate by donating all of his time and skills in creating this statue as a labour of love for his hometown. The statue will be permanently sited overlooking the harbour, so it can be enjoyed for generations to come.
We need your help to raise in excess of £60,000 to fund; the bronze casting, site groundworks, plinth and the statue’s local journeys back and forth during the finishing process, before our very own George IV arrives at his final destination on the harbour side.
The first tranche of funding is needed for planning permission application and rental whilst George is in storage ready for Bronzing.
