Oh my goodness! Is this the best we can do when it comes to voting?

Please, please support Tina in her role as Charity Co-ordinator.

Mesothelioma gets my vote, if for no other reason than to show my support for the incredible courage that Mavis has shown all of us.......

I have also voted for Mesothelioma UK.

As well as being inspired by Mavis's own battle against Mesothelioma I have been saddened this year by the death of my daughter-in-law's father, who died from the disease. He probably contracted it from exposure to asbestos in the Navy.

I became aware of the industrial health disaster of asbestos in the 1980s after I moved to the Upper Calder Valley. Local groups were campaigning to make safe the site of Acre Mill asbestos processing plant. The link on the local community website gives lots of information.

I thank you, Chris, for your post...

The Acre Mill links make exceedingly sad but fascinating reading. I did notice that Asbestosis got around 30 lines of print, whereas Mesothelioma got 6!! That would suggest the Meso was still very much still in the background, as suggested by this snippet from the same link...

Meanwhile, the 1931 asbestos regulations had been updated in 1969, and a limit for factory asbestos dust exposure of 2 million fibres per cubic metre (m3) of air was to be gradually introduced. Unfortunately this Ďhygiene standardí did not include consideration of the lung or mesothelioma cancer hazards.

Another snippet referring to Mesothelioma... Until the 1960s this form of cancer was unrecognised.


Clearly, there must be a greater acknowledgment of the existence of the evil Mesothelioma, and much more work must be done to find a cure for those who are inflicted with its associated cancers.

Which is another good reason for supporting this charity this year.

My other half Motorhomer would show her support and vote but cant as her account has NEVER been linked to my subscription despite requesting every year that it is. She still shows as a non subsciber

Its just as bad or worse when you get to the giving phase see this years result on what was the overwhelming choiceof charity to support.


If you were to deduct the rally group contributions and those that entered my whisky competition the result would would be even poorer.

(I don't mean to say that the those that contributed at rallies or in my competition would not have otherwise contributed)
