Donations to Queen Elizabeth II Rutland Memorial Fund

Her late Majesty served us steadfastly for 70 years. It would therefore be particularly appropriate to create a lasting, permanent Rutland  memorial to Her Majesty. We have already had enquiries about a route for donations for a such permanent memorial to Queen Elizabeth II.

The plan is to create either a bas relief as we did for the Duke of Edinburgh, or a bust on a plinth or possibly a full size bronze statue. Some such a memorial will definitely be erected, but its nature will inevitably depend on the funds available. The current proposal is that it will be located outside the Library in the County Town of Oakham, clearly visible to all who pass through the town.

Cheques made payable to “The Rutland Lieutenancy Fund” may be sent to me (at The Old Vicarage, Whissendine, LE15 7HG) or to Kate Haworth, Deputy Clerk to the Lieutenancy, Rutland County Council, Catmose, Oakham, Rutland, LE15 6HP. Unfortunately donations cannot be made electronically owing to banking complications.

Please mark the envelopes clearly  “Queen Elizabeth Memorial”.

Please state if you wish your donation to remain anonymous.

His Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Rutland
