Last Day and So Many People to Thank
We were 'Waved-Off' today by the Lord Mayor of Swansea Alan Lloyd, who already has strong links with the Local Government Associations of both Palestine and Israel, and he presented us with a letter and Swansea Commemorative Plaque for the Mayor of GAZA. His Union the CWU Vallies'Branch also made a kind donation, as did the NUJ Swansea branch.
Family and friends, and supporters of Freedom for Palestine were there to wave us off. A representative of the Palestinian Society of Wales presented us with a very generous donation. And we also had a donation form the Swansea University Mosque. We want to particularly thank the MOre Green Project who managed to source for us a considerable amount of Medical Aid. Not forgetting Langstone who donated high-viz jackets, steel toe-capped boots and sunglasses! Last but not least the Social Services Transport Depot for their patience. Apologies from the Aunties if we have forgotten to thank anyone, it has been an amazing few weeks and we've had So much help, support and kindness from everyone.
