World Refugee Day to have Pillar at the MK Rose – fundraising day 25th Feb

RWMK has been successful in its application to have one of the 106 reserved Pillars at the Milton Keynes Rose in Campbell Park. This commerative/engraved Pillar has been awarded following an application by Refugees Welcome Milton Keynes specifically to commemorate World Refugee Day annually on 20th June, and will be ready in time for that date.

To help raise funding in support of the engraving for this and other such Pillars, the Milton Keynes Parks Trust will be holding a Pancake Race event on Tuesday 25 February starting at 11:30, inviting local businesses to enter teams to take part in a relay race around the Events Plateau in Campbell Park (see details https://www.theparkstrust.com/events/mk-rose-corporate-pancake-race-25220). We hope that this will raise the first few hundred pounds, but the final cost will be significantly more than that.

We are delighted to have been awarded this Pillar, and look forward to the ceremony on 20th June and the fundraising event on 25th February.
