Story

Horsforth Cenotaph honours the men from Horsforth who lost their lives in World War One. However the names of some men were missing. The Horsforth WW1 100 Years Project has raised money to have the missing names added to the cenotaph, so every Horsforth man who sacrificed his life will be honoured.

The money raised has also funded the set up of lighting at the cenotaph. I would like to raise money to cover the cost of the lighting for its first 2 years which would take us to the 100 year anniversary of the end of World War One in 2018.

Each year I take part in the Horsforth High School charity swim & this year to raise funds for this project I aim to swim 89 lengths in 45 minutes - 89 lengths to represent the 89 Horsforth men who lost their lives during WW1 in 1917 - this is the next commemoration the school is marking, following on from the events held this summer to mark 100 years since the Battle of the Somme.

    I was honoured to be invited to speak at the remembrance service at Horsforth Cenotaph today. I was also privileged to accept the new Community Cup on behalf of all the lads involved in 'The Pals' project & our teacher James Bovington, who had been instrumental in all the projects we have undertaken to remember the men of Horsforth who sacrificed their lives for us.

    Thank you to everyone who has donated & helped me to exceed my fundraising target. My swim was planned for tomorrow evening but unfortunately I have injured my wrist & have a suspected scaphoid fracture. My swim will be rescheduled once I know the outcome of further x-rays, I will keep this page updated. One positive is that I can keep this page open for longer & hopefully raise even more funds, so please share my page with friends & family & help me to raise the total even further. Thank you, Ethan
