Community Magazines Call for Public Subscription to Fund the Statue

We are very grateful to local magazines The Post, Preston Pages and 7Directory. They have not only featured long articles about Mary and the Appeal, but have also made the campaign their cover story, using wonderful images of Mary and publicising  the fact that the design and rough maquette (model) of the statue-to-be are now complete. 

We are especially grateful for the Editorial which read: “We are so proud to have the history article about Mary Clarke this month and want to thank Jean Calder and the whole team for their work to recognise and record this brave woman properly. It would be especially wonderful if the statue were erected by public subscription – a genuine expression of our pride in a hitherto unknown local heroine”.
