Location – The Association has been invited to supply two benches to be located along the water front at Stanley. Trustees have discussed the invitation and believe that the best way to enable the supply of these benches is to ask for donations from pilgrims both past and future. The donations will defray the cost of supply and shipping (estimated at £1500) of these durable benches.
Donors – To mark the source, a list of donors will be kept and will be recorded on a scroll to be kept on the wall in the office. Anonymous donations are also welcome; please indicate if you wish your donation to be anonymous. The supply of these benches and their seaward looking location is a fitting and symbolic way to reciprocate the hospitality and generosity of the people of the Falkland Island in looking after our visiting veterans. Donations are welcome from members, beneficiaries and supporters of the South Atlantic Medal Association 1982. Any surplus of funds will be placed in the memorial maintenance fund and used to maintain the benches and the SAMA memorial.
How to donate – You may donate by cheque or bank transfer. Please make cheques out to SAMA82 and indicate “FIBenches”.
