Thank you to my backers for covering recent expenses and my meals and travel in Liverpool. I have £25 a day to spend. With your help I can do even more. The odds are still favourable for you to win a copy of The Beatles double album (aka The White Album) valued at £30-£50.
Each further donation will help me gain valuable tools, information, and contacts during my four days in Liverpool.
Some projects for the rest of the year are:
- A George Martin Music/Production Scholarship. The Beatles Producer grew up in poverty in Drayton Park, Islington. He also had family in Holloway. He died earlier this year. I have submitted an application for a plaque that will hopefully be installed in 2017/18. I would also like to try to get something more than a plaque to commemorate his role in helping the Beatles come to prominence during a time of much positive change. Particularly, a music or production scholarship for talented young local musicians from disadvantaged backgrounds would seem fitting.
- IT support remotely and at users' homes for DPAC.
- An investigation into the data security of the pilot "jobs at the GP" scheme involving Remploy in Islington. Maximus, of the Work Capability Assessments, are major shareholders in Remploy.
CareMyWay is another new initiative that requires independent IT vetting. It provides digital access to patient records, with involvement from the private sector.
- Further involvement with the campaign to keep Hornsey Town Hall Green publicly owned.
Every pound helps.
