Submarine Runs The London Marathon on 3rd October

by Graham N Bishop in Eastleigh, England, United Kingdom

We did it
On 20th October 2021 we successfully raised £2,641 ( + est. £532.75 Gift Aid ) with 99 supporters in 42 days

Help me raise the final £4000 for the Submariner Memorial Appeal and let's reach the target of £440,000!

As an ageing submariner it's important to me that the crews of Royal Navy submarines lost in war and in peacetime are never forgotten.

That’s why there is going to be a fitting memorial for them at the National Arboretum Memorial where visitors can reflect and remember such bravery and sacrifice.

Thank you
