Weʼve raised £25 to erect a war memorial in Water Orton Warwickshire. It is planned to be ready to celebrate the centenary of the armistice on 11.11.2018.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Following village consultation, a small team are working towards creating a public space focal point for the village to remember those who gave their lives that we may be free.
'Celebrating peace, valuing our heritage'.
We appreciate that £25,000 Is a lot of money but the memorial will be in grey granite, will give an opportunity for reflection, for education about world war history and peace.
It is hoped that it will bring many facets of the community together-the school, uniformed groups, youth groups churches and local residents.
We are writing bids for grants but to date have struggled to find funds where this project falls within the criteria.
