Petition to Bath and North East Somerset Council, John Isserlis
Julian House - do not change Women's Refuge on Walcot St - it is a community lifeline
Women's Refuge (previously known as Women's Aid) is a lifeline to the community. The support they provide is twofold, as a charity and as a shop. Not only does the shop serve people with low income (who come from all across the city) but the charity it raises for gives essential help to vulnerable women. The charity has helped a huge amount of women and children over the years. The local contract that enables Women's Refuge to function has gone out to tender and has been won by Julian House - who will be taking over the shop from April 1st. This means that it is highly likely that Women's Aid will not continue in it's current form. If Julian House take over the shop we want a guarantee that the current volunteers and pricing structure will remain. We don't need another overpriced charity shop on Walcot Street. Julian House already have one shop 100m up the road. We must make sure that the shop stays open and that the good work continues! Bath needs authentic charity like Women's Refuge... and should not be just an exclusive city for big brands and the super rich. Please sign and share! PS the potential closure of the Bath Women's Refuge shop has upset a lot of people - I would like to state that any abusive emails or tweets received are not associated with me (Jools Scott) in any way.
Petition to Age NI, Age NI Carrickfergus
Save Our Shop in Carrickfergus
The Age NI shop in Carrickfergus is more than just a charity shop. For the customers and 24 volunteers it's a way of life. Many people have crossed over it's doorways in the 30plus years it has been on West Street either as volunteers, Duke of Edinburgh Award students, various get back to work schemes and even some on community service. Now they need YOU to show them your support. They are looking for a three month extension to the proposed closure to either find premises to relocate or to get the community behind them again. How can you help? Simply sign and share this petition AND call into the shop, say Hello and buy something. It's that simple...
Petition to Mick Cash, RMT
RMT to postpone the DLR Strike affecting the London Marathon (20th - 24th April)
Whilst it is recognised that sometimes there is a need for industrial action as a last resort to protect workers and their working conditions, the next proposed strike action by the RMT for their members who work on the DLR is called for four days beginning at 4am on 20th April 2018. This means that the strike will directly affect the 60,000 participants of the London Marathon which takes place on Sunday 22nd April.The London Marathon is widely recognised as the largest Charity one day event in the world and has raised over £830million for good causes since its inception in 1981 with a record £61.5million being raised last year alone, a figure that is expected to be exceeded this year.All 60,000 participants must attend the London Marathon Expo held at the London Excel between 18th & 21st April to complete their race registration and collect running numbers etc. The Excel is only directly served by the DLR. On Sunday 22nd April most participants as well as the hundreds of volunteer stewards, officials & medical staff will rely upon the DLR to reach the start of the race in Greenwich and to access the first 20 miles of the 26.2 mile course which runs through the area that is predominantly served by the DLR as opposed to any London Underground line. It is therefore essential to the successful running of the London Marathon that the DLR operates the full enhanced service they have provided in previous years. As one of those 60,000 participants who will be affected by this action I therefore (along with the undersigned) call upon Mick Cash to recognise the vital service he and his members provide which contributes to this mammoth charity effort and to postpone the strike action called for 20th April to a later date that does not coincide with the London Marathon.
Petition to The Air Ambulance Service staff
The Air Ambulance Service: CEO Andy Williamson & Deputy CEO Alexandra Pope must step aside
The Sunday Times has accused The Air Ambulance Service CEO Andy Williamson of using charity resources for his own benefit & of conflicts of interest including payment to a company of which him and his wife are directors Deputy CEO & Director of People Alexandra Pope is responsible for HR decisions at our charity where allegations of bullying have also been reported in The Sunday Times https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/star-struck-air-ambulance-charity-boss-inquiry-ds33cct78 https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/the-high-life-ascot-junket-and-vip-service-for-air-ambulance-chief-andy-williamson-x6vdh7x50 https://www.thirdsector.co.uk/regulator-re-opens-air-ambulance-service-case-admitting-previous-advice-fell-short/governance/article/1459809 We the former and current staff of The Air Ambulance Service is saying enough is enough. We believe by refusing to step aside Andy Williamson and Alexandra Pope are putting their own interests above that of the charity. We ask for them to step aside before we approach the media and Charity Commission to shame them into going. This will damage the charity more so we ask that they do decent thing and go now. Their departure is for ultimate good of The Air Ambulance Service. VERY IMPORTANT: When you sign unclick options to 'Display my name and comment on this petition' and 'Share with Facebook friends' and you can remain anonymous. Nobody will know you have signed and we will get enough numbers to make a difference. Please pass on and let us get lots of signatures.
Petition to SYCO
Little Mix: Love, Pride and Life
Hello Mixers, I am creating this petition to get LM to perform at a charity show on the 7th of May 2018 and the O2 Academy in Brixton. This show will be raising money for Cancer Research UK, Stonewall, Music for Relief and the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention. The show, if it goes ahead, will be open to a certain amount of Mixers across the world, especially in South America, as, although the show is in London, it goes no excuse as to why other Mixers can't attend. Places I plan to let Mixers come from: Asia, South America, North America, Canada, Europe and Australasia (Australia and New Zealand) Please help make this become a reality by signing the petition and making sure to share it on social media with the #LittleMixforLovePrideandLife
