Charity description

We are asking for donations for ‘Walking Together’ – a mining memorial artwork by artist Stephen Broadbent which has been commissioned by Derbyshire County Council for the Markham Vale Industrial and Business Park, Derbyshire. The park is being developed on the site of the former Markham Colliery and the local authority, developers and community representatives are working together to recognise and commemorate this significant history.

The ‘Walking Together’ artwork will see over a hundred steel figures symbolising a miner’s journey to the pit – and back home again.  The ‘Walking Together’ figures represent the 106 miners who were killed in the three major disasters, which occurred at Markham in 1937, 1938 and 1973.

We really appreciate all contributions both big and small which go to support the commemoration of the men and their communities who were effected by the disasters at Markham.
