Successful Campaigns
    UPDATE: 28/07/16 We campaigned against 38 trees being cut down, and I also wrote to the council planning department, raising a list of issues. They listened, though didn't meet with me, but that led to 23 trees being cut down, rather than 38, so we saved 15 trees! Thank you for your kind support, 38 Degrees staff xx.

  • Come clean and show us the contract
    As you'll see from the last update, the County Council accidentally left a PDF of the contract on their website which could be unredacted if converted to a word processing file. This got out into the public domain and is still (as far as I know) viewable online, although the council have of course replaced it on their site. So an accidental win!

  • NHS England's scorecard Denies Access to Treatment for Ultra Rare Diseases
    19/12/2014: Following the threat of a legal challenge by a 10 year old boy with Morquio, NHS England have announced that they are abandoning the scorecard and are going back to the drawing-board on their approval process. We are really pleased that the petition and threat of legal action has forced NHS England to develop a fair decision making process for ultra-rare diseases - thank you to everyone who signed.

We haven't stopped there, working with architect John Burrell we have devised a scheme to bring the buildings back into use, addressing Kings' concerns, and improve the urban environment around them. We are preparing the scheme as a publication of several drawings that will be distributed in hard copy and as an e-brochure in September. Please see the front cover of the alternative scheme here:

  • Protect small cider producers
    Thanks to your support we were able to hand in a petition with over 26,000 signatures urging the Government to back small cider producers. On 8th July 2015, the Government responded in its Budget. The Chancellor has announced that the Government will retain the current duty exemption for small cider producers. This is excellent news for real cider drinkers and small producers alike. CAMRA is delighted with the Government’s commitment and will now be working hard to ensure that they can keep the promise with a legal exemption in the EU Directive. Thank you for making this a campaign win!
