WW1 - Lights Out Campaign

I wholeheartedly urge the people of MK to get behind the "Lights Out" campaign to mark the centenary of the start of World War One.

Lighting a single candle for just one hour at 10pm on 4th August is a fitting tribute to those who fought to secure the future for so many generations to come.

A simple request, a time to reflect and show our gratitude to those who gave their lives for us."

The campaign hopes to light one million candles across the UK to remember each and every one of those Service men and women who gave their lives in the war to end all wars. Please join together with us to create a unique national moment for the United Kingdom and The Royal British Legion.

Westminster Abbey will be leading the nation with a First World War vigil liturgy which will be broadcast live on the BBC.
