1914 Memorial Trust project gathers speed

21st April 2015

Work in progress on bronze statue as club reveals fundraising plans for Rangers game and Gorgie Suite Trust Dinner.

As announced last November, the club has joined forces with the 1914 Memorial Trust to honour what many regard as the greatest Hearts team, namely the famed team of November 1914. 

A bronze statue was commissioned from the Powderhall Foundry in Edinburgh, who won the commission ahead of a number of international foundries and work started immediately. Fundraising has gone very well to date and we are two thirds of the way to our total for the magnificent 7 foot tall bronze statue, which will be unveiled here at Tynecastle stadium later in the year if everything goes to plan.

We will be asking fans to donate if they can at the upcoming Championship Party game against Rangers, bring a pound to the game was in our thoughts but whatever you can donate will make a difference to the 1914 Memorial Trust project. 

Further to the fundraisers present at the Rangers match, a superb evening of entertainment is sure to be had at The 1914 Memorial Trust Dinner which is due to take place at the Gorgie Suite at Tynecastle on Saturday May 9th. Chairwoman Ann Budge and the Championship Trophy are the guests of honour with Scott Wilson, Andy Cameron and Sheriff Lindsay Wood providing many laughs and a delicious 3 course dinner is included in the ticket which is priced at £35 per person.

Tables of ten and individual tickets are available from the ticket office. To book call 0871 663 1874, option 1 and then option 8 (calls cost 10p per minute plus your standard network rate) between 9am and 5pm from Wednesday 22nd of April but please note, places at this fantastic event are limited.
