Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Judy, a pure bred English Pointer, born in 1936 in Shanghai, China had an extraordinary life, marked by disaster, extreme courage and faithfulness. She was the only animal officially recognised as a prisoner of war, was awarded the Dickin Medal, the animal VC, and now lies in a grave in Nachingwea, Tanzania.
In recent years Judy’s grave in Nachingwea has been damaged and the plaque has disappeared, see photographs below.
The church of St. Andrew’s in Stapleford, Cambridgeshire has a 35 year link with a sister church in Nachingwea, Tanzania. We are involved with many projects in Nachingwea and we would like to support the restoration of Judy’s Grave including a replacement plaque.
Any surplus funds will be used for educational projects in Nachingwea. We hope that in future the children of Nachingwea will take care of Judy’s grave, so her memory is not lost.
