Welcome to the campaign to design, construct and install a monument, dedicated to the Naval and Military heritage of HMS Vernon, in Portsmouth, Hampshire.
Our fundraising effort continues apace, and we have now moved beyond the £120,000 milestone of monies raised towards the monument – our aim for 2013 is to significantly add to this sum in the coming year. All donations are warmly welcomed and supporters are encouraged to browse our Purchases pages for merchandise – all proceeds go towards the design, construction and installation of the monument. A registered charity, we can process Gift Aid certificates for all donations.
Sketches of the proposed monument’s design: with a concrete and steel-reinforced pedestal, mounted on the canal’s seabed, the fourteen-ton stone and bronze above-water structure is a delightful design by renowned sculptor Les Johnson FRBS.
