Weʼre raising £800 to help fund a World War One memorial project to remember 35 men from Walkington who have left for war, never to return
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.
The 11th November 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War in which 26 men from our small village enlisted in the services and never returned. To mark this centenary and remember all those from Walkington who have left for war, never to return, a one-off project is planned to create 35 silhouettes of a British Tommy at prayer, as a fitting memorial. These memorials will carry the name of one individual taken from the village war memorial and one single poppy. This project is being funded by sponsorship and donations made by community groups and individuals. It is planned to have all memorials produced and in position around Walkington for the start of the British Legion Poppy Appeal 2018. On the 11th November 2018 all the memorials will be moved to All Hallows Church yard as though on parade for 11am. Please support this appeal and Remember Them.
