First World War I Exhibit and other fundraising donates £2000 to The Royal British Legion
Lakeland Motor Museum constructed a First World War command post display to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Great Britain entering the First World War on the 4th of August 1914.
The money collected by the generosity of the museum, Windermere Cruises and donations of many visitors has now reached the magnificent sum of £2000.00 which has been donated to the R.B.L. poppy appeal.
It was originally hoped that the exhibition would raise £1000.00 but has now exceeded all expectations and contributions are still being collected.
2015 will be the 70th Anniversary of the end of World War 2, the war in Europe ended with the surrender of Germany on the 15th of May 1945, the war ended with the surrender of Japan on the 2nd of September 1945. The museum is planning to commemorate this anniversary in a similar way as that for World War One
