Fundraising Update March 2008

My fundraising has had some major boost over the past few weeks following an article in my Unions monthly journal which I highlighted in an email blitz to my friends and contacts. I have now reached the £12,000 mark - only £8,000 to go!

My good friend and colleague Severino Filho from the Brazilian merchant navy officers union (SINDMAR) pledged a significant sum.

Cleo Doumbia-Henry who is Director of International Labour Standards at the International Labour Organisation has pledged personal support. Jacques Bille (formerly of ACOMARIT in Geneva) with whom I worked with on the Global Mariner campaign back in 1998 and Susanne Meyer from Columbia Ship Management have also pledged support.

Andrew Cassells from BP Shipping has also made a pledge in a personal capacity.

And my Aunty Pat has made another pledge as too have my Mum, Dad and siblings (I am the eldest of 5!).

My thanks go to you all!
