Why donate to the National Emergency Services Memorial?
Over 7,000 emergency services personnel and volunteers have been killed in the line of duty. Today there are c. 2 million people in the UK who work in the emergency services, ready to protect life and property in an instant. The least we as a country can do is build a national memorial to give thanks to all those in the emergency services, past and present, and to honour those 7,000+ people who have given their lives in the name of public duty. It is a sad fact that there is no ’emergency services cenotaph’ to act as a national symbol of gratitude and remembrance.
How much do we need?
If we are to build a national emergency services memorial in the UK, then we need to raise £3 Million! It can only be done with your support. So, whether you can spare £1 or £100,000 – all of the money will go towards reaching that end goal of a lasting national emergency services memorial to honour the men and women who have lost their lives serving our great country.
How do I donate?
You can donate securely via the ‘donate’ button below. If you don’t have a PayPal account you can send us a cheque – info below – or click the ‘don’t have PayPal? Continue’ button. Click here for guidance. If you would like to make a recurring donation please tick the box.
When making a donation please be sure to include your name and address (if you are willing for us to claim Gift Aid). Gift Aid is reclaimed by the emergency services memorial from the tax you pay for the current tax year. Your address is needed to identify you as a current UK taxpayer.
For every £1 you donate the government gives us an extra 25p, so if you donate £10 we actually get £12.50 as the government pays the extra £2.50…….only if you give Gift Aid. By allowing us to claim gift aid you are a UK taxpayer and understand that if you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations it is your responsibility to pay any difference. (Get in touch with us if you don’t understand this)
Or alternatively, please make any cheques out to ‘The National Emergency Services Memorial’ and send them to 126D Reading Road South, Fleet, GU52 7TP.
