Thanks also to all who bought tickets for the fundraising concerts knowing they wouldn’t be able to attend but wanted to support the statue anyway. After just 1 more fundraising concert we will have enough raised to begin stage 1 of the construction of Gary’s Belfast statue! (There will be 5 constructions stages in total)

In preparation for this we are now contacting the council to have the location for Gary’s statue approved and ready for our sculpture artist to commence once we have raised the funds for stage 1. We will keep you updated on the progress.

We have an online t-shirt fundraiser at the moment, just click on the t-shirt image on the website home page to order your t-shirt in any size.

Stay tuned for the next update!
