GMB Donate £10,000 To Hillsborough Family Support Group
Members of the Hillsborough Family support group have tirelessly fought for truth for 27 years and we are happy that we have been able to support them says GMB.
GMB passed an emergency motion yesterday (Wednesday, 8th June) GMB Congress to donate £10,000 Hillsborough Family Support Group. (See notes to editors for a link to a video archive of the event).
The motion was presented by GMB Birmingham and West Midlands Delegate Alan Dudson and followed the presentation of a gold badge to Hillsborough Family Support Group chair, Margaret Aspinall. Each of the nine regional officers, as well as the GMB national office, committed to donating £1000 to the group.
Alan Dudson, GMB Birmingham and West Midlands Delegate, said “While the gold badge that was presented to Margaret was a well-received gesture, I felt that due to the hardships suffered by the families of those at the Hillsborough incident, a financial award was well deserved.
Members of the Hillsborough Family support group have fought tirelessly for truth for 27 years and I’m happy that GMB has been able to support them.”
