Warwick Castle lit up in tribute to First World War fallen

Laura Kearns 16th Nov, 2018   0

WARWICK Castle was among a number of national landmarks lit up on the eve of Remembrance Sunday in tribute to the First World War fallen.

Guy’s Tower was illuminated with the silhouette of a soldier as part of the commemorative centenary Armistice art project ‘There But Not There’.

Other landmarks lit up were Marble Arch, Tate Modern and HMS Belfast in London, the Angel of the North and the Tyne Bridge in the north east, Edinburgh and Cardiff castles, and Titanic Belfast.

The project aims to educate people about the conflict which claimed the lives of some ten million troops, and to raise money to support veterans suffering mental and physical problems.

So far some £4million has been raised by selling 25cm high perspex Tommy figures for the campaign, with money going to charities including Help for Heroes and Combat Stress.

Visit www.therebutnotthere.org.uk to buy a figure for £30 or to find out more.
