THE FUSILIER MUSEUM, BURY

A Message from the Chair of the Fusilier Museum

The Fusilier Museum needs your votes to win an AVIVA Community Grant.

Currently the Fusilier Museum has an excellent exhibition of the 18 Victoria Crosses won by the Lancashire Fusiliers during the Great War on display in the museum. As part of the commemoration the Museum has commissioned a memorial to the recipients and has also commissioned 18 oil paintings of them. These will be unveiled on the 1st December and 9th November respectively. The Museum has already collected some of the funds for the memorial and the paintings.

The good news is that the Museum has been shortlisted for an Aviva Community Fund to the value of £20K. This will help fund the memorial stone sculpture, which is to be erected in the Gallipoli Garden to commemorate the end of the Great War and towards the portraits of the 18 recipients of the Victoria Crosses.

Voting has opened on the 23rd October and all votes have to be cast by 20th November at midday. Everybody who registers gets 10 votes. Your votes can be cast towards one project or spread across multiples - the choice is yours but obviously the more votes the Museum receives the better chance they have of winning an award.

To vote you need to click on the link below, register and then and search for the project entitled ‘For Valour – We shall Remember Them’ or put in the location Bury in the search box. The process takes no more than 5 minutes.

Please vote and please also share this with as many of your friends and relatives as you can so the Fusilier Museum, Bury can receive enough votes to win the £20K grant.
