We have commenced a project to remember those 675 Marlborough men and women who gave their lives in service over the last century by establishing a memorial wall outside the Clubs. This was initiated by Chris Moran who is disabled and is unable to view the names in the cenotaph clock tower. It also became evident to us during the 100 Last Posts for 100 years ceremonies that we needed a safer and accessible option when senior citizens fell on the steps of the cenotaph. We also need to correct incorrect names and insert those that were omitted originally. We need to raise $35,000 and while we have obtained a $10,000 donation towards this we have decided that we will seek support from businesses, Clubs and MRSA members and the public. With 646 names we are seeking $40 sponsorship per name.

There are a few ways you can make a donation too by posting a donation to MRSA, 42 Alfred Street, Blenheim OR dropping it at Clubs reception OR donate via internet banking. Make your deposit to account number 01-0598-00019901-003. Use your surname and the code Wall as a reference. If you’d like a receipt, email with the subject line “Internet banking donation”, making sure to add your name, date and the amount of your donation. A receipt will be emailed to you.
