Fundraising news: Brenda Campbell to run Liverpool marathon for INQUEST
28 April 2014
We are delighted that Brenda Campbell, longstanding INQUEST supporter and member of the INQUEST Lawyers Group, is running the Rock n Roll Liverpool marathon on 25 May in aid of INQUEST.
Her 26.2 mile endeavour is particularly poignant in light of the Hillsborough inquests and she plans to salute each of the 96 as she runs past Anfield.
INQUEST is providing support to the Hillsborough families and their representatives as they go through the inquest process. At the same time we are maintaining a nationwide caseload on a greatly reduced budget due to funding cuts, to provide support and assistance to the hundreds of bereaved families facing inquests into deaths in custody or following police contact across the country.
Please support Brenda in this impressive undertaking! Her donation page is here
‘Let me record my thanks to and appreciation and admiration for the organisation INQUEST… That organisation, which is based in my constituency, has done amazingly good work over a long period in supporting the families of people who have died in custody. Nothing is popular about such cases, but the organisation has been dogged in pursuing them. I think we should appreciate the value of civil society organisations of that kind which do so much to promote decent standards and liberty, and which help the House to produce better legislation.’
– Jeremy Corbyn MP
