Support the Project
2018 will be the centenary of the Representation of the Peoples Act. Let's honour Annie Kenney; our working class suffragette!
We need your help and support to install a statue to celebrate the life of working class suffragette Annie Kenney.
So far we have raised £22,000 of our £30,000 goal!
Born in 1879 in the town which had developed to become the 'King of Cotton she began working life aged 10 years old. In her time at the mill Annie supported other women to read and became a trade union activist.
Following the regeneration of Oldham's Old Town Hall and the construction of Parliament Square, a plinth at the steps of the Old Town Hall, we now need to fund the statue!
