If you’re a UK registered voter you may be interested that there’s a current petition in support of charities that have lost funds in the collapse of Icelandic banks. The text of the petition says,
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to do everything in his power to assist with the recovery of funds lost by UK charities in the failed Icelandic bank Kaupthing Singer and Friedlander. [Petition here]
I became aware through ambmarketing’s blog:
As you may have seen in the media, Naomi House based near Winchester, along with many other charities have been caught in the Icelandic banking collapse. Naomi House has £5.7 million pounds frozen. After nearly two months the government remains silent on the subject of whether they will have their funds returned even though they have looked after the smaller retail depositors to the tune of £2.6 billion.
Naomi House is the children’s hospice for Berkshire, Dorset, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Wiltshire and the fringes of West Sussex and Surrey. We help over 220 families with life limiting conditions and support their families. We are there for the good days, difficult days and last days.
This may make a difference, it may not, but if you’re registered to vote in the UK it may be one of those small things that tips the balance and doesn’t take you any time to do.
