Suppport Ludlow Fundraisers

This petition had 5,502 supporters

Dear supporters

The Ludlow hospital fundraisers dressing up in drag (an event the town has supported for 20 years) have raised a fantastic £2500 - funds which were to pay for a new ECG machine. 

This story has gained national news coverage because of its absurdity, and the over reactions of Chief Exec Jan Ditheridge. Having never received any complaints about this event, the only person who seems to have taken offence is the Chief Exec herself. 

To turn down such vital funds in this era of public sector cuts, is not only an incredible insult to those who volunteer their time to fundraise, but also to the local community that continue to support this event year on year. 

We call upon Jan Ditheridge and the Shropshire Community NHS Trust to retract their highly personalised position, and accept with thanks, the donations raised by these volunteers and the good people of Ludlow who have generously given money in their support of this event.
