Weʼre raising £1,500 to To raise the money for installing a Memorial Bench to The Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment

Gheluvelt Park, Worcester
10 days to go

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.


In the City of Worcester there is no such memorial to the men and women that served in all the Battalions of Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment. The bench will be situated in Gheluvelt Park Worcester. As you enter the park through the Memorial Archway from Barbourne Road at the junction of the Kidderminster A449 and Droitwich A38 roads the bench will be sited on the right as you enter, opposite The Worcestershire Regimental Stone. We are looking at having the bench installed in April 2019, for unveiling on Saturday the 27th April 2019.

On each end of the bench there will be a 6" badge of WFR on a round disc

The plaque on the backrest will read......" This seat is dedicated to the memory of all who served in the Regiment and to Honour those who were killed on Operational Active Service and those who died whilst serving"

The fundraising will hopefully cover the costs of having Regimental plaques fabricated and fixed to the bench that has been refurbished especially for us. The rest of the fundraising will hopefully cover holding an unveiling ceremony and costs incurred. Worcester Branch W.F.R.A. are looking ahead to having badged plaques applied to a bench in Worcester City.

The cover photo is a mock up of badge at same size as ordered put onto a Hardy Padmore bench. As with photos below
