Who are we?

The National Emergency Services Memorial was founded by Tom Scholes-Fogg in Autumn 2016, and is managed by a Board of Trustees and a team of volunteer Ambassadors.

What are we doing?

We are raising at least ¬£3 million to build the UK’s first 999 Cenotaph. This important monument will honour ALL who have served in the emergency services.

Where will it be built and who’s the sculptor?

We have commissioned the highly respected sculptor, Philip Jackson CVO DL to build this national symbol of gratitude, sacrifice and remembrance.

This monument will be located in Central London.

What will the National 999 Memorial look like?

As you can see from the photo above, the 999 Memorial features six figures to represent the emergency services and the NHS. There is a police officer, a firefighter, a paramedic, a doctor/nurse, a maritime figure (to represent HM Coastguard and the lifeboats), and a search and rescue volunteer (to represent mountain, lowland, cave and mine rescue). We have also included a search and rescue spaniel to represent all emergency services animals.

The NHS figure is wearing scrubs whilst all other figures are wearing the uniform they would wear when responding to a 999 call.

How can I donate?

We can only build this national monument with your donations so please do donate today and don’t forget to add GiftAid.
