    Weʼve raised £1,875 to help replace the memorial plaques at St Boniface church

    Funded on Thursday, 18th January 2018

    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 charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Many of us in Bunbury and surrounding villages gather every November to remember the sacrifices of our armed forces, sacrifices that mean we can live in freedom today. Sadly, St Boniface's memorial plaques were recently stolen in a callous act of theft. So that something good can come from this, please give whatever you can to help restore the names of the fallen before Remembrance Sunday. All money given will be donated to St Boniface and if there is a surplus, it will be donated to The Royal British Legion. Thank you.

      A message of thanks from the Vicar and Wardens at St Boniface (cont): So the tremendous response and generosity of the community has opened up the prospect of going further than replacing the plaques. At our recent Parochial Church Council meeting various suggestions were discussed including: - a memorial plaque inside the church itself displaying the Roll of Honour - a commissioned memorial altar cross to be used at Remembrance - additional lighting at the Memorial Gates illuminating the names of the fallen and improving safety & security

      A message of thanks from the Vicar and Wardens at St Boniface: We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of so many people in our community and wish to thank Chris for setting up this page and all the people who have donated money - the response has been extraordinary and is really appreciated. The cost of replacing the Memorial Plaques is partially covered by our insurance and a number of local businesses have promised contributions that should cover the excess.
