A post for International Womens Day announcing the launch of a Just Giving page raising funds for a public bench featuring King’s Lynn’s most famous daughter, Margery Kempe, to be placed in the Saturday Market. Whether or not you donate please share widely.
This is very appropriate for International Women’s Day, and very useful for the town of King’s Lynn if we manage to raise the money.
The plan is for the bench to be located in the Saturday Market Place, in the area of town where Margery Kempe, King’s Lynn’s most famous daughter, lived.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
If you are able you can donate on the Just Giving page created by my Aunt with some minor assistance on my part that has gone live this very afternoon by clicking on the image that ends this little post. Whether you do so or not you can help by sharing this as widely as possible.
