Dear Colleagues,

 

Durham Miners Gala 2018

 

Durham is one of the most popular historic events in our movement’s calendar. Last year it was estimated that 200,000 people, young and old, experienced the unique atmosphere of music, politics and community spirit and the Durham Miners Association have every expectation that more will be there this year.

 

The crowds around the platform were so large that the PA system, although improved, was inadequate to reach everyone. This year they are making an appeal for help to raise an extra £15,000 to hire the type of system used at music festivals, with a large screen, so everyone will be able to see the speakers and hear what they have to say.

 

RMT is a Friend of Durham Miners Gala and we would encourage branches and individuals to help secure the future of this important and historic event by joining the growing band of Marras* by donating to this year’s appeal. Ways to donate are listed below.
