The monument will be funded entirely by voluntary donations. All and any contributions are therefore very welcome.
Registered as a Charity in England and Wales, the Vernon Monument is also currently progressing the appointment of a Patron – more news to follow.
Our preferred means of donation to the Charity’s fund is via a Bank Transfer to “The Vernon Monument Project Fund” accompanied by a Gift Aid declaration. Details of how this income tax recovery mechanism works are listed on the HMRC web site. The mailing address for the Project Vernon Honorary Treasurer is listed on the Contact Us page on this website.
For those supporters organising fundraising or sponsored events, the next most effective means of collecting funds is probably via PayPal or credit card (see the button below).
Alternatively, donations may be paid direct via BACS transfer to:
Account Name: Vernon Monument Project Reserve Account
Sort Code: 52-41-32
Account No: 45667721
We have now raised our project target to over £325,000, to reflect recent rises in the cost of materials, scale and location – assuming that the current concept of a 1.75 life-size statue, made from bronze, stainless steel and granite, mounted in 5 metres of water is going to be the sculptor’s final design, but watch this space!
Any surplus funds raised, post-installation,will be earmarked for Phase 3, (Interactive displays).
Please register your support now or, better still, donate a sum of money for the monument… all contributions are welcome!
