There But Not There is the 2018 Armistice project for the charity Remembered
Remembered aims to:
- Commemorate the Fallen through installations of Soldier Silhouettes.
- Educate all generations about why they made the ultimate sacrifice.
- Raise substantial funds through sales of our 10-inch Soldier Silhouettes to help those suffering from the mental and physical wounds of their service.
To remember the fallen and raise funds for veterans today you can purchase your own Soldier Silhouette, which are built by veterans in the UK. Click on the link below to find out more.
The centenary of the Armistice marks a defining time in our history. So many people sacrificed so much in those war years and we must remember them. This project is a fitting memory to our forebears and Walking With The Wounded is honoured to be one of the beneficiaries of people’s generosity. While it is crucial we remember the past, we must not ignore the present, and as a charity we will continue to provide support to men and women who continue to serve on our behalf, particularly those who have struggled since they left the Armed Forces. There But Not There will help us do just that.
Ed Parker – Co-Founder & CEO, Walking With The Wounded
“I do commend this creative and imaginative project very warmly. As we commemorate the end of the First World War it is vital that we remember and this project allows us to do so in a way that will engage with the imagination and be a real exercise in remembrance.”
The Most Reverend & Right Hon. The Lord Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby
Throughout the world I see the impact of war and conflict and I am keenly aware of the effect this has on the mental health of some of our Service personnel. I am proud we are engaged in working to help them in this field and I really believe that the There But Not There project is a moving way of getting everybody who sees it to understand what veterans are facing.
Help for Heroes is honoured to be involved in this inspiring and innovative project which is a poignant tribute to all those who lost their lives in WWI. The support from There But Not There will help us look to the future by enabling Help for Heroes to empower more Veterans to reach their potential and regain their purpose. We are founded on the belief that those who put their lives on the line for us deserve a second chance at life and this project serves as the perfect focal point to reflect on this sacrifice and do something about it.
Mel Waters – Chief Executive, Help for Heroes
True Patriot Love is thrilled to be a part of the There But Not There campaign. Not only does it serve to commemorate the heroes of the past, but it will also help True Patriot Love provide much needed support to our heroes of today.
Bronwen Evans, CEO, True Patriot Love
We take immense pleasure in joining There But There in their campaign. With dignity and grandeur, they pay the perfect homage to those lost. As our social enterprise Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company, which employs Armed Forces veterans giving them a second chance at life after their service, has been kindly chosen to help with this tremendous project, it is clear that There But Not There not only remember the service personnel of yesterday, but also look to improve the lives of veterans today.
Brigadier Steve Sherry CMG OBE, Chief Executive of Royal British Legion Industries
In addition to the life-size silhouettes which will be seen around the world throughout 2018, we have created a limited-edition table-top Soldier Silhouettes., based on our logo, to represent British, Commonwealth and United States troops who fell in the First World War, and in conflicts since.
Funds raised from the sale of these figures will go to supporting charities that operate in the country of purchase, such as the Invictus Games Foundation, who use the power of sport to inspire recovery and support rehabilitation to ex-servicemen and women around the world, and to charities who provide vital support to veterans across the Commonwealth, the United States and Great Britain.
