Where will you be on 28th November to celebrate 100 years of women in Parliament? Why not on The Hoe in Plymouth looking at the statue that you made happen?

The appeal to raise for this historic monument is still open and there are still chances for sponsorship and also rewards on the Crowdfunder which include getting your name, the name of your family, or the name of your business into the Time Capsule to be opened in 100 years.

28th November will be an epic day for Plymouth, a real ‘giving thanks for Plymouth’ day on this year’s Thanksgiving Day.

Media from all over the world will be coming to the city on GWR’s Nancy Astor Express to the unveiling on The Hoe at 1:00pm to mark 100 years of women in Parliament.

It is a golden opportunity to show your support for this amazing celebration of women in Parliament and how 100 years Plymouth made history – and continues to do so.

Businesses who want to be part of that can help to sponsor the unveiling and get themselves involved in the media coverage planned. Or you can pick an exclusive reward from the Crowdfunder here:

  • £100 return ticket to London on GWR’s Nancy Astor Express.
  • Get your name and picture in the time capsule for just £25.
  • Buy a variety of Plymouth Gin rewards at knock-down prices.
  • Have tea in Lady Astor’s former family home.
  • Donate to the Crowdfunder to be part of this world-famous community project

Don’t forget too that Drake’s Jewellers in Plymouth are selling their special Astor Diamond Collection to celebrate 100 years of women in Parliament – it’s exclusive, exquisite and 10% of all sales go to the appeal.
