Miss Murray has not just dreamed about she has got on and done something.
Tom Murphy, the Liverpool sculptor has designed the statue and Miss Murray has got on with the fundraising. Am initial target of £19k is now achievable and at the last count only three thousand pounds is needed.
The statue will stand in the grounds of the Star of the Sea Church in Seaforth looking out towards where the CofE church of St Thomas formerly stood. This is the church of which a very young Gladstone wanted his Father to grant him the living.
The statue will stand about 8 foot high. Tom Murphy's bust will stand on a 5 foot high column and plinth. So all that remains is the outstanding money. If you would like to contribute or know someone who might please get in touch so I can pass your details to Brenda Murray
