Support Dermot after benefit axe

We are raising funds after our good friend Dermot Rathbone had his benefits axed because he has spent over 28 days in hospital. Such rules were brought in via the Tories cruel Welfare Act meaning that DLA/PIP/Attendance Allowance/Carers Allowance is withdrawn. Within the last 28 days in hospital Dermot was expected to die on 4 of those. He has multiple, chronic and life threatening health conditions but regardless of being hospitalised still has bills to pay and a child and wife to look after. Dermot is a life long socialist, activist and campaigner; the founder of Save our NHS Hull and East Yorkshire and Deputy Director of Hull Samaritans. He has dedicated his life to helping others and in his hour of need we need to step up to the mark. All funds will go to Dermot and his family and the money is required ASAP. Please help if you can.
