At last we can close the account on the restoration of the War Memorial. The sum raised was £4852.32. The total cost of the repairs to the War Memorial was £4904.40 (including VAT). We have now been successful in obtaining a refund of the V.A.T. After taking out the overspend of £52.08 (the difference between funds raised and the total cost) the remainder will go to the two charities which were agreed before we started on this process, i.e. Help for Heroes, British Legion. The total sum of £765.32 will be shared equally between these two charities.
Many thanks to all of you who helped in any way to raise these funds to repair the war memorial.
