Charity description

Hollingbourne Meadows Trust Limited is spear heading an ambitious project for 2018 Code named Project 100.

HMTL are working in partnership with the Leeds Hollingbourne and District Branch of the Royal British Legion, who mooted the idea of planting 100 trees to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1. This gained the full support of the County Chairman & committee of the RBL.

We are looking to raise more than £250,000 in donations from both public and commercial entities.

These funds will allow both charities in partnership to plant a 100 tree Avenue of Remembrance. This ambitious project is designed to be a living and growing memorial to mark the historic event, the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1.

After the initial cost of the project is covered by the funds raised, all surplus funds will be evenly divided between the two charities. The ultimate goal is to raise at least £100,000, (representing £1000 per year), for the Leeds Hollingbourne and District Branch of the RBL. They will in turn discharge these funds into the appropriate approved Royal British Legion charities funds and causes, with County advice and approval.

Full details of the project can be found on the Meadows Trust website (Link below).
Project 100 is looking for everyone who feels that they want to be a part of this project to make a small (or larger) donation towards it. If we can get at least £2 from every person whose social media platform this comes across, then we will successfully be able to achieve all our goals and build this beautiful Avenue of Remembrance for all too freely enjoy.
We are also looking for businesses, commercial entities and companies to get behind the project and support it in any way that they can.
We are looking to have an official launch of the finished project in time for Armistice Day / Remembrance Sunday 11th November 2018. All will be welcome to attend and enjoy, the spectacle of our living memorial, on this historic occasion.
Thank you for giving* generously and please follow and share our social media updates and to view the project progress.
