Get involved in the There But Not There campaign.
With the centenary of the end of World War One approaching, communities are thinking about how they can commemorate and bring people together to remember.
Youth United Foundation is offering to its member organisations, in conjunction with the charity Remembered and the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, the opportunity to get involved in the There But Not There campaign.
There But Not There are providing Uniformed Youth Groups with ten Tommy silhouettes each for benches and chairs, free of charge, to use in their own remembrance events throughout November, and then keep to use for years to come.
If you register, you will also receive some great educational resources to accompany the figures and to help you either enhance an existing community event or set one up.
Scout Groups across Merseyside can get involved in this nationwide event. All you need to do is apply online by midnight on Sunday 16th September. It only takes 2 minutes!
These silhouettes can be used in a variety of ways, in the building or community space your units use, or to enhance any existing commemoration plans you have in order to bring to mind those who went to war and did not return. This is your chance to take part in what will be a truly national and high profile commemoration event.
This project aims to Commemorate, Educate and Heal:
- Commemorate those who died in the First World War through installations of silhouettes wherever there is a Roll of Honour.
- To Educate all generations, particularly today’s younger generation, born nearly 100 years after the outbreak of WW1, to understand what led to the deaths of 888,246 British and Commonwealth service personnel.
- Heal today’s veterans who are suffering from the mental and physical wounds of their service by raising substantial funds through the sale of the silhouettes and other merchandise
Please consider getting involved.
