Weʼre raising £15,000 to raise funds for Loch Ness Wellington2020, restoration of plaques and collection of data and stories.


What is crowdfunding?

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.


Our project is about commemoration, remembering, uniting and connecting people with their pasts and futures. Here’s how you can get involved with our project, or help us with our funding.

Restoration of the original 1989 Plaque - Estimated cost £1,000. The original in bronze is in fair condition, but does however need a good clean.

Replacement or New Sonar Plaque. Estimate Cost £5,000. Put up in 2002, this plaque describing the Academy of Applied Science role in finding R for Robert, is in poor condition and would ideally need replacing. The LNW2020 team have suggested a more embracing linking text describing all the interconnected teams who collaborated and got the Wellington out of the water. Applied Science, Martin Klein’s Klein Side Scan Sonar equipment, Heriot Watt University and Robin Holms forming the Loch Ness Wellington Association that raised the funds to raise the Wellington.

Filming and editing £3,000 - we'd like to commission a film to not only capture the events of this commemoration, but to link in with other historic media to re-tell the story.

      This was my Grandfather's aircraft in WWII - I remember the day it was raised very clearly as a young lad!
