Heritage Lottery Fund awards £9,900 to The Orange Lilies Project at Strike a Light to mark First World War Centenary
Today, Strike a Light, in partnership with Brighton & Hove Library and Information Service, and Fabrica received £9,900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for a project, The Orange Lilies – Brighton and Hove Soldiers in the Somme, in Brighton and Hove. Awarded through HLF’s First World War: then and now programme, the project will focus on the city’s legacy of the Somme and a significant event on the eve of this (where huge numbers of Brighton soldiers fell), The Battle of Boar’s Head (also known as The Day that Sussex Died), as a key part of WWI, and its’ subsequent impact on Brighton and Hove.
