Appeal for Heroes orchard in Grantham park reaches three quarters of target
An appeal to raise money for a commemorative orchard in memory of Grantham's part in D-Day and Arnhem during the Second World War has reached three quarters of its target.
A pledge of £5,615 from South Kesteven District Council has delivered a boost to the fund-raising appeal to plant the commemorative Heroes Orchard next to Wyndham Park.
Walton Academy has also come on board with plans for a week of school assemblies and fund-raising activities it hopes will contribute hundreds of pounds to the project.
