Scouting Memorial Project

08 Memorial Badge - cloth

The Scouting Memorial Project is a national campaign designed to raise awareness of “Remembrance”. It aims to raise funds to build and maintain a Scouting memorial to remember those who have given service to Scouting and their communities, especially those members of Scouting who have suffered through conflict.

The project is not only about raising funds for a memorial, but also about raising awareness of remembrance. We aim to create a focus for national Scouting remembrance and to increase the education and awareness of our young people to the concept of remembrance by recognising the service and sacrifices made by others on our behalf. With ongoing conflicts this recognition is just as relevant today as it has ever been.

The Scouting Memorial will be sited at the National Memorial Arboretum located in the centre of England in Staffordshire and will lie within Lichfield Scouting District.

It will cost just over £80,000 to design, build, insure and maintain the Scouting memorial for the next 20 years.

The £80,000 will be raised through donations made through an online giving site; Groups and Districts running their own fundraising events; and donations from the Memorial Badge appeal.
