Help us save Burns Monument

Built in 1823, Burns Monument embodies the enduring love affair between the people of Alloway and Robert Burns, a ‘Great Scot’. But its future is under threat.

Constant exposure to water is damaging the monument and this once majestic building is at significant risk of permanent damage.

Urgent repairs are now required to conserve the fabric of Burns Monument and make it a living memorial to Robert Burns.

Beautifully engraved plaques in the shape of red roses with names and messages from people who have helped to protect Burns Monument will ‘bloom’ in Burns Monument Gardens from summer 2016. If you’re one of the first 200 people to donate £75 or more, your name and message will be added to A Rose for Burns.

The first £100,000 of this appeal will go towards urgent repairs to Burns Monument. Any funds raised over this amount will go towards ensuring the stories of our Great Scots continue to be told for future generations
