Lest we forget

AluK’s Senior Product Marketing Manager Dave Prout has been responsible for a truly fitting and inspirational memorial marking 100 years since the end of the first World War. He has created a stunning tribute to all those who fought and died in the war at the Full Fathom Five sculpture overlooking the sea in his home town of Portishead, Bristol.

Dave has invited businesses, organisations and individuals to sponsor one of 100 oversized poppies which he has placed on each of the individual granite columns which make up the contemporary artwork. His aim is to raise £10,000 for the Royal British Legion and, with the support of the likes of AluK, he has almost hit his target.

The poppies have been in place since 4 November and will remain there until 18 November. There is still time to support Dave’s efforts and to get your name on the supporters’ Roll of Honour which is being displayed at the sculpture, online via The Royal British Legion’s Portishead Branch and in the local press.
