The project target has been raised recently to over £345,000, to reflect recent rises in the cost of materials, scale and location. Fundraising to date has been based on the concept of a 1.5 life-size statue, made from bronze, stainless steel and granite, mounted in 5 metres of water and the Trustees and Management Committee continue to fully support the decisions of their predecessors. 

Any surplus funds raised, post-installation,will be earmarked for Phase 3, (Interactive displays).

Register your support now and, better still, please donate to the monument fund.  The sooner the funds are in, the cheaper the eventual cost will be and the quicker the monument can be built… all contributions will be gratefully received.
