Legacy 110 Project

Legacy 110 Project 

‘Legacy 110’ is an award-winning initiative which encourages students who engage in the First World War Centenary Battlefields Tour Programme to deliver a community-based First World War project.

The aim of ‘Legacy 110’ is for every participating student to create an enduring legacy by impacting upon at least 110 people within their local community.  If this is achieved, then the total number of people reached by 2019 will equal 888,246, which is equivalent to the number of British and Commonwealth soldiers who fell during the First World War. ‘Legacy 110’ reinforces the remembrance of these soldiers who were also so vividly commemorated in 2014 through the art installation of poppies at the Tower of London.

This is what the name ‘Legacy 110’ signifies and why it is such a fitting way to remember those who made the supreme sacrifice 100 years on.

Year 12 student, Caitlin Williams, has wrote a moving blog about her visit to the Battlefields and this can be viewed here:
