    Weʼve raised £255 to Erect a memorial in Newbattle Church in memory of those from the Parish that died in WW2.

    Funded on Wednesday, 11th October 2017

    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.


    Newbattle Church WW2 is a beautiful old church with a fascinating history, however I always thought that it had a chapter missing from that history, a memorial to those who fell in the Second World War.

    Well I’m pleased to say that the Parish has taken the decision to approve a memorial and to begin fundraising for it.

    In total the names of 54 men from the Parish have been identified for inclusion on the memorial, a number of them are not commemorated anywhere at present, this will put right that wrong.

    The total cost will be approximately £1000 and it's our intention to have the new memorial plaques in place for Remembrance Sunday this year.

    Please give what ever you can to preserve the memory of these men who gave their all for the freedom we enjoy today.

    Thank you - John Duncan, Newbattle at War

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
