THEY SHALL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN! -Community funding for a memorial in remembrance of Danes who have fallen in the service of their country.
The Danish community in London are coming together to erect a memorial in remembrance of the Danes who have fallen in the service of their country.
To celebrate their lives and their memory, and to commemorate both civilians and military service personnel, The Anglo-Danish Society, The Danish Church in London, The Danish Royal Guards Association, and the Danish-UK Association will together erect a memorial in the grounds of the Danish Church in London.
The memorial is a stone, approximately 1.5 meters tall and made from granite. The stone will be erected in the garden of the Danish Church in London at a cost of approx. £12,500.
We now need your support to buy and erect the memorial. Funds have already been pledged, and in a typical community spirit we all are known for we welcome any support big or small.
We anticipate revealing the memorial on a Sunday near 5th May, Denmark’s Liberation Day, with a Church service, and it is intended that this will become an annual event. More to follow on that.
Please make a donation – just click the link and give generously today.
Any surplus funds raised will be used for maintenance of the stone, the launch event in May 2023 and if there is more left then we will donate to a veteran’s charity in Denmark
The Donation will be made via the Danish Church’s website or by bank transfer and qualifies for Gift Aid, if you are a UK taxpayer. Donating through Gift Aid means charities like the Church can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give.
