Bangor University Memorial Arch Raising funds

Can you help the good people at Bangor University raise funds to restore the Memorial Arch at Bangor?

We have taken the text below with permission from the University website. If you feel you can help then phone them, email them or even throw money at them, but do something and do it right now to preserve the city's history.

Please read on.......

We shall not forget the heroes of North Wales who fell in the Great War.
Bangor University, in partnership with community organisations, is raising funds for the conservation of the North Wales Heroes’ Memorial Arch. Within this unique building are oak panels inscribed with the names of over 8,500 soldiers, sailors, and airmen who fell in the First World War, arranged by parish within county.
The building of the Memorial Arch, which opened in 1923, was made possible by generous support from the community. Today, we are again asking individuals and organisations from North Wales and beyond to support the Memorial Arch, ensuring that it is preserved for generations to come.
To make a gift or request further information, please contact the Development Office.
