Support Boston's First World War Memorial Appeal

The centenary of the start of the First World War will be marked in Boston with the unveiling and dedication of a pair of specially-designed memorial benches in the town's Memorial Gardens on the day of the anniversary - Monday, August 4.

Boston Borough Council, Boston and District Branch of the Royal British Legion, Boston Branch of the Royal Air Force Association, Canal Zoners and the Boston Veterans Memorial Plaque Committee are appealing to all to make a contribution, no matter how small, towards the memorial benches.

The latest donation has come from George and Mary Chambers, of Kirton, and Kirton Monday Club, which raised funds with a raffle.

Contact Andrew Malkin at Boston Borough Council - phone 01205 314308 or email andrew.malkin@boston.gov.uk - if you plan to hold a fundraising event or have a special reason for wanting to make a donation.

You can make a donation to the appeal using the council's online payment facility using a debit or credit card; in person at the Municipal Buildings using a debit or credit card, cheque or cash; or by post using a cheque.

Cheques should be made payable to Boston Borough Council and "Boston First World War Memorial Appeal" should be written on the reverse to indicate what the payment is for. All donations will be recorded on a public roll of honour.
