Plymouth MN Monument Fund



Over the past two years a lot of work has been completed by the Fund committee in respect of planning, design, location and fund raising.
The next fund raising initiative will be using the concept of Crowdfunding.
This commenced on Monday 9th October 2017 and the link is:
Plymouth MN Monument Crowdfunding

Part of this site features a video which may be previewed here:



The success of any crowdfunding initiative depends on as many people visiting the site as possible whoever and wherever they are,
so that as many as possible world wide have the opportunity to support us to help erect the monument.
Please help by passing this link to as many people as possible, be they friends, relatives, clubs etc, and asking them to spread the word as well.
Thank You
