Fancy owing a piece of Liverpool’s Strawberry Field? Well, a campaign to raise funds for the site made forever famous by the Beatles has just been launched.
There was an old Victorian building that stood on the site, this was demolished back in the 1970’s, as of now, the the Salvation Army are looking to turn the existing site into a place where young adults with learning disabilities can call home.
So, how does it work? The Strawberry Field Buy A Brick initiative will work in the following way. Beatles fans will be able to purchase a piece of the building. Each of the bricks for sale will be cleaned and presented in a box, and each piece will be numbered and embossed with a hologram.
