Users of the Lifeworks mental health service have been occupying premises at 128 Tenison Road, Cambridge, since March 4th to oppose the closure of this vital service. As a result of their brave stand – which has already won a lot of public support – NHS managers have been made to admit that they failed to properly consult the service users, and have offered to postpone the closure. However, since no concrete guarantees have yet been given about Lifeworks’ future, the campaigners have vowed to continue the occupation and continue the campaign for as long as it takes.
The longer this campaign goes on, the more resources it needs, for publicity, banners and essential resources to keep the occupation going. So please would you consider making a donation to their campaign fund? The Lifeworks occupiers are showing the way in defending vital public services – their fight is all our fight, and it is vital we help them to win.
Please make cheques payable to Cambridge and District Trade Union Council and mark them ‘Lifeworks’ on the back. Please send them to Lifeworks Campaign, c/o 2 St Catharine’s Road, Cambridge CB4 3XJ.
Many thanks, Lifeworks campaigners and supporters.
