Over the last 18 months we have been working on an oral history project interviewing people who spent their childhoods in the Kent seaside towns of Dover, Folkestone, Margate and Ramsgate during WWII. A pilot project funded by Kent County Councillors from Folkestone and Thanet and the Community Fund.
The response to our call for memory sharers has been very generously answered so much so that it has spawned several smaller projects in Folkestone and above all, here in Dover.
Dover District Council has launched a local authority lottery: The Dover District Lotto to help local good causes. We are very pleased to announce that the council has approved our project as worth supporting.
Please buy a ticket so that we can continue to record and preserve the stories of quiet courage and resilience shown by the people of Dover.
Give it a go! You may even win £25,000.00
