Tommy at Carlisle Cathedral

Love, Pray, Remember

During the period of the poppies installation at Carlisle Castle, the Chapter is pleased to present the exhibition 'Drawing to a Close' by Robin Oliver

There is also an opportunity to light a candle in the south aisle to remember someone who suffered through conflict and war.  Names of those remembered will be read at Evening Prayer on Thursdays during the exhibition period.

There but not there

TOMMY is a WW1 soldier, appearing at Carlisle Cathedral as part of the national There But Not There campaign which marks the centenary of the end of the conflict.

The campaign aims:

To Commemorate the Fallen through highlighting the sacrifices made

To Educate all generations, particularly today’s younger generation, born nearly 100 years after the outbreak of WW1

To help Heal those suffering from the hidden wounds of post-traumatic stress disorder and other lasting legacies of combat, by raising funds for their beneficiary charities

The following charities are being supported as part of the There But Not There campaign:

·        The Royal Foundation

·        Walking With The Wounded

·        Combat Stress

·        Help for Heroes

·        The Commonwealth War Graves Foundation and Project Equinox: Housing Veterans.

TOMMY has been made by veterans atthe Royal British Legion Industries.
