We are Hinderwell, a small village in North Yorkshire, about eight miles North of Whitby. It is our wish to acknowledge 100 years from the end of the Great War by erecting a 6-foot Tommy silhouette. This is part of a Nationwide Installation for the Fallen and our way of recognising the sacrifice from the village.
Barbara Kearney of the village is attempting to walk the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2,650 mile trek from the Mexican Border through America to the Canadian Border. The trek encompasses numerous eco systems:- desert valleys, snowy alpine peaks, lava fields and lush ancient forests. With temperatures varying from 140 degree Fahrenheit/ 60 degree Centigrade down to well below freezing, Barbara’s walk is going to be a severe test of her strength and character but a great adventure.
With any funds raised we will be buying the 6-foot Tommy and placing it in a prominent position to recognise the 25 Villagers that made the ultimate sacrifice in the First World War. We are aiming for at least £1,000 which will pay for the Tommy and the installation, anything over the required amount will be presented to the There But Not There Charity which aids Veterans.
Please give generously for this wonderful cause and ensure our heroes are “No Longer Just a Name on a Wall.”
