    he is probably too ill to carry a sack home! If anyone can get hold of his sort code I’ll send him a tenner, bet lots of others would too. Perhaps some of our efforts could be pooled to give emergency funding Of course that is why we pay national insurance!

  • Bridget, Peter died on the 13th and they are even refusing to give his wife a funeral grant and it’s looking like she’s going to be evicted from their house. We are looking into launching an appeal for her.

    This may have been already explored, but as I am not reading anything about it, I think I ought to bring it up as a Dutch national myself, I would suggest or ask if the Dutch Embassy in London was contacted?
    What about Peter’s family in the Netherlands (if he has any that is…)?
    Rust zacht, Peter. Sterkte en oprechte deelname aan Laurel.

    ok I admit to being a totally tight cynic. Can one of you assure me that a donation at this link will actually go to his wife

  • Holmey October 22, 2011 at 10:17 pm

    100% Bridget, the people who run the Don’t let Disability Mean Inequality fund are known to both BT and DPAC, every penny that gets donated through that link with “For Laurel” marked will get to Laurel and as it is stated, they operate a total transparency policy.

    obviously (because my whole life is jinxed) the link from the donate page will not work for me. I have never used pay pal but I do not see why t hat would be relevent for not even getting the link to show. I The link button had little icons for visa etc. Have I just dithered too long? Bet no one else had trouble. I may have an over zealous fire wall set up by my son? I was only going to give a measly tenner.
