Today Andy Moss and volunteers at Uriah Woodhead made over 50 stencils fuelled by bacon butties (not Andy as he is a vegetarian) and the drive to undertake the practical element for the Fallen project.
One of the volunteer was Monica Kershaw, mum of Bradford soldier Private Christopher Kershaw who was killed in Afghanistan last year. She became involved because Uriah Woodhead is doing a plaque in memory of her son.
“It is quite like a connection,” said Ms Kershaw. “I had to come across and help. It has been absolutely brilliant.”
Uriah Woodhead have donated all materials for the Fallen project in support of the event for Peace Day in France on the 21st September.
But we still need help and now we have organised a coach coming from Bradford. It will depart on Thursday night at 2200 and return on Sunday. We ask for a contribution of £115 for those with wage and £55 for those without, this includes camping fees and communal food. It will be a grand day out!
BBC Look North and The One Show will be coming to France to cover the event and the Telegraph & Argus have been showing their full support. An article on the day can be seen here
