On Seafarers' Awareness Day, June 25th 2015, the Company presented a cheque to officially start the fund raising for a MN memorial on Plymouth Hoe.

The Plymouth Merchant Navy Monument




In June 2015 the Company kick-started the fund raising with a generous donation of 1,000.


Over the past three years a lot of work has been completed by the Fund committee in respect of planning, design, location and fund raising.
The recent fund raising initiative using Crowdfunding successfully reached its target of 31,000 in pledges and is now closed.
Part of this site will feature a video which may be found here:


Further donations, however large or small, will still be most welcome from individuals directly.
You can donate directly by debit and credit card or PayPal funds through PayPal's system -
