The UK’s National Lottery Heritage Fund has provided £835,600 for restoration work to take place on the English city of Preston’s war memorial, reports The Lancashire Evening Post.

The council has put forward the remaining £124,000 needed and is confident the memorial will be renovated in time for the Centenary events scheduled for 2014.

A portion of the funding will also be spent on activities and workshops to inform and educate people about the war’s impact on Preston.
