'Take pride in Great War sacrifice'

News | Published:

THE co-founder of national First World War commemoration charity, Never Such Innocence, visited Elizabeth College yesterday to help launch its latest competition for young people.

Lady Lucy French's charity aims to raise children's understanding of the war and gives donations to military causes.

The charity is holding a national competition for schoolchildren to create art and poetry inspired by the events of the war, which is being promoted with a roadshow visiting schools across the United Kingdom.

Lady French said it was important that children understood these events, and specifically knew what part the island played in it.

'It's getting children to recognise the sacrifices that have been made and to take a pride in that,' she said.

'We don't want it to fade into the history books, we want it to stay in the minds of young people.'
