Fact File

Project/Applicant Name:International Bomber Command Centre
County:Lincolnshire
Theme:Community Buildings
Grant Received:£700,000

The International Bomber Command Centre in Lincolnshire serves to recognise and remember the sacrifice of the 57,861 people who gave their lives and over a million others who served Bomber Command during WWII.

The UK's tallest war memorial, the same height as the wingspan of a Lancaster Bomber, stands surrounded by a Wall of Names, honouring those who lost their lives protecting our freedom.

Biffa Award's grant of £700,000 supported the creation of interactive and immersive exhibitions bringing the history to life. In 2017, we visited Lincolnshire to see the name panels being made - a gallery of photos is below.

We’re really pleased to be able to support the International Bomber Command Centre. The centre will pay respect to those who served at Bomber Command and allow visitors to explore the personal stories of the men and women who played such a vital role in our history - Gillian French, Biffa Award Head of Grants
