Lucas and myself had a meeting with Staff of the National Memorial Arboretum (NMA) on Thursday 18th Jul 2019.  Lucas, who is supporting TNCMC with our Social Media & Website Marketing, was keen to meet the NMA marketing staff to glean information on how best to serve TNCMC. It was also his first visit to the NMA and found it very interesting, especially seeing the TNCMC plot.

This Memorial is quite near to our allocated TNCMC Plot. 

We were also told about the 75 D-DAY Vessel of Victory which is an artistic tribute to all those who served on D-Day.

Well I found some pens but what to write?

These were both our creations and contribution to the 60,000 Vessels to be created, which is another idea of raising funds for the NMA.

 A short but very useful visit to the NMA which left Lucas wanting more and has planned to be back in the very near future. 

Please be reminded that we have commissioned a 10% scale model of our Monument design (https://thenationalcaribbeanmonument.org/index.php/aboutus) to be completed by the end on October 2019. After our first payment we need to raise £10,000 ASAP to complete the next two instalments. 

We need your support to make this project a reality. 

To donate: Text “TNCMC 5” to 70085 to donate £5. Standard mobile rate will be charged. Or, give any amount up to £20 (e.g. “TNCMC 20” to give £20).

Many thanks to Staff at the NMA for their time, creative ideas and support, which was extremely useful. 

Your contribution along with your family, friends and colleagues will go a long way.
