UNISON has pledged to match donations made to a HOPE not hate appeal to help tell the story of Robbie Mullen.
Mr Mullen helped foil a fascist murder plot when he contacted the charity to let them know that Jack Renshaw was planning to kill MP Rosie Cooper and a policewoman as a political statement.
Mr Renshaw – who has now also been revealed as a convicted paedophile – has admitted preparing a terrorist plot and will be sentenced next month.
To help HOPE not hate hit its fundraising goal, UNISON is going to double the first £10,000 worth of donations made before Monday lunchtime.
“When I read about Robbie Mullen earlier this week, I wanted to do something,” said general secretary Dave Prentis.”His bravery in foiling a Nazi murder plot is an inspiration.
“UNISON has decided to match every donation made to the HOPE not hate appeal. We want Robbie’s story to be used to tackle the radicalisation of young people before it starts.”
And Mr Prentis continued: “We have to invest in education to turn young people away from their messages of hate.”
To help Hope not hate tell Mr Mullen’s story, UNISON is going to double the first £10,000 worth of donations made before Monday lunchtime.
If you are a UK taxpayer, your donation will be eligible for Gift Aid.
