Memorial Bench Fundraising Update

McCrae’s Battalion Trust launched a crowd funding page on Sunday 22nd February 2020, with the aim of raising £2000 towards a wooden bench and transportation to Contalmaison, France, in memory of Lt Col Gary Tait MBE and Patricia Leroy.

We were absolutely overwhelmed when that total was reached in less than 24 hours, and donations continue to come in. We are aware that there are still Trust members and friends who would like the opportunity to contribute, so we have taken the decision to open a separate fundraising page, from which Funds will go directly to Cancer Research, and also allow the option of Gift Aid, which was not possible via the Crowd Funding page.

The new donation link is:

From the bottom of our hearts we thank everyone for their kindness and generosity for this cause to remember of dearly missed friends, Gary and Patrica.
