Armed Forces Day – Remembering Scunthorpe’s Heroes – 11/07/11

Armed Forces Day

Henry Boot Construction has created a memorial wall to commemorate the lives lost by servicemen and women in the Scunthorpe area, as part of their works in the local community.

The brick slip wall was unveiled at the Scunthorpe 2nd Armed Forces Day on June 25th, with bricks purchased in memory of individuals by their family and friends on the day.

The wall was donated by HBC and Hamiltons, who are undertaking insulation upgrades for North Lincolnshire Homes in the area, with all proceeds going to the Help for Heroes charity.

The event organisers are looking for a permanent place to display the wall within the town, and hope to raise further funds through the sale of the remaining bricks.

“Thanks to HBC and Hamiltons for their kind donation – it’s a fantastic and permanent way to remember the fallen heroes of Scunthorpe and all those that have paid the ultimate price so far.”

John Witting, Treasurer, Scunthorpe Armed Forces Day
