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 2 million people in the UK who work in the emergency services and the NHS – including 250,000 first responders, ready to protect life and property in an instant. The least we as a country can do is build a national monument to show our appreciation to all those in the emergency services, past and present.
The 999 Memorial includes 6 figures stood back to back – they are a police officer, paramedic, firefighter, NHS doctor, Maritime Rescue and Search and Rescue, and a Search and Rescue dog to represent 999 service animals. All figures (except the NHS figure which is wearing scrubs) are wearing the uniform they wear when responding to a 999 call. As you can see from the photo above, this is going to be an incredible monument which will last for hundreds of years.
Where will the memorial be built and who is the Sculptor?
The 999 Memorial will be built in Central London and the Sculptor is Mr Philip Jackson CVO DL.
How much do we need?
If we are to build a national emergency services memorial in the UK, then we need to raise at least £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. Don’t forget to add GiftAid!
