Anonymous donation boosts memorial fundraising

Mesothelioma UK – Supporting our Armed Forces has received a generous anonymous donation to the value of £15,000 to help create a new memorial. The memorial is a unique concept depicting the building blocks of life, engraved with vital awareness information about mesothelioma, asbestos and our Armed Forces.

We want the families and friends of those affected to be able to visit the memorial and pay their respects or celebrate a key milestone. Let’s keep all these memories alive.

We’re looking for your support through donations as this will help us to create and build the memorial, and one day bring together family, friends and donors to remember our heroes.
The ‘Mesothelioma UK – Supporting our Armed Forces’ memorial will be made up of over 60 blocks. Our target is £40,000 and we’re thankful to everyone who has donated so far. The sooner we can raise the funds the quicker we can have the memorial made.

We’re accepting donations from as little as £10, right up to sponsoring a block for £500. You can support the creation of the new memorial by:
• Sponsoring a block at £500 each or a number of blocks
• Donating any amount to help us reach our target
