An appeal to raise £92,000 for a statue of Dame Thora Hird in Morecambe has been launched.
Christine Stebbing, chair of Morecambe Heritage, said it had long been her wish to put up a statue of the star in her birthplace.
Christine said there had been support for the statue to be sited at the top of Victoria Street.
Christine now hopes to raise the money through crowdfunding, and has set up a GoFundMe page.
She added: "The grant applications thus far have not proved positive but I will continue to apply to relevant bodies. I have now produced a booklet which is available from Morecambe Heritage Centre in the Arndale Centre Morecambe priced £1, again to raise funds and awareness."
Thora Hird died in 2003, aged 91
