We are delighted to announce that Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom has agreed to become Patron of the Fund.
As James Arbuthnot MP, he was instrumental in helping Alan Bates and his fellow Subpostmasters get their voices heard in the corridors of power, and he has continued to campaign on their behalf from the House of Lords. He genuinely cares about the Subpostmasters and the horrendous stories he has heard, and he has spent years of his life doing his utmost to give their case the exposure it has needed. His support will help us continue to promote the Fund and our work helping Subpostmasters while compensation is resolved.
Our trustee, Nick Wallis, and his journalist colleague, Rebecca Thomson, interviewed Lord Arbuthnot in a recent podcast, where he talks about how and why he came to be part of the campaign. Fascinating listening.
