Weʼve raised £10 to Support the maintenance of the recently unveiled African & Caribbean War memorial in Windrush Square, in south London http://bbc.in/2sW4xtA
- Brixton South London
- Funded on Monday, 23rd October 2017
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 only installation of an African and Caribbean War Memorial in the UK (may be Europe) recognising the black regiments that fought in World War I and World War II who have never been recognised. Over 2 million black soldiers lost their lives fighting for the Empire without recognition.
This historical memorial ensures that fact is not airbrushed out of history.
Although the memorial has been publicly unveiled there is still much more to do to complete the installation in full. After this we need to ensure that the memorial is protected and fully insured against vandalism, which we experienced on the day of the unveiling.
We plan tour of schools giving both students and teachers a learning experience on the regiments, which will also encourage, give confidence , confidence and educate all communities about the contributions made by black solders to making Britain Great.
We also plan to support veterans still living from WWII, and show our appreciation by annually hosting our local Remembrance Day celebrations. To find out more please visit http://www.acmemorial.com or contact us via email: info@ACmemorial.com
