Long Description:
This statue was paid for by Sunday Telegraph readers to commemorate the great American President. The statue cost £50,000 to build and no one person was allowed to donate more than a pound. John F. Kennedy was one of the greatest allies of the United Kingdom and one of the most famous presidents of all time because of his age and youthful exuberance in the White House. When he was assassinated the people of Britain were just as shocked as those in America as this statue is testimony.
