Louth based company GBM Demolition has announced a fundraising campaign that will support the development of a new football stadium.
Using their current demolition project at the Malt Kiln as inspiration, the company will print 10 exclusive limited edition prints of the iconic Louth monument which will go up for auction at The Brackenborough Hotel.
The images, produced by local photographer Jackie Stephenson, will be chosen by members of the public via GBM Demolition’s dedicated Facebook fan page.
The 10 photographs with the most ‘likes’ will be printed and sold for this incredible cause, and everybody is invited to attend and bid on the evening.
The date and time of the auction is yet to be confirmed.
It is hoped that the heightened level of interest in the Malt Kiln building, which is due to be fully demolished within the next few months in order to make way for an Aldi supermarket, will lead to significant funds being raised towards the project.
All the money raised during the auction will be donated to the EARLY (Education Advancement Recreation for Lincolnshire Youngsters) project, and will specifically be used to fund ‘phase one’ of a new community football stadium on land off Nottingham Road Fairfield Industrial Estate.
The development will include an all weather 3G playing surface, floodlighting, spectator stand, a function room, a club house and three 5 a-side playing surfaces – all with planning permission from East Lindsey District Council.
Louth Town Football Club is expected to move to the new site once their current Park Avenue home is demolished to make way for housing.
