Created November 7, 2018
I have set up this website on behalf of the friends and colleagues of Martyn Percy, head of one of Oxford’s largest Colleges, and a Church of England Cathedral Dean. As I understand matters, Martyn has been attempting reforms of the institution and is now under unjust pressure after he sought to address lack of pay parity, including in regard to gender.

When progress was blocked, he shared his concerns internally about potential breaches of regulations. It appears that in consequence Martyn was accused of inappropriate behaviour. They seem to have described Martyn as a whistle-blower and have tried to pressure him to resign.

Despite all this, it appears that no disciplinary proceedings were brought against Martyn relating to his supposed conduct. It is clear to me as a friend, that proper processes of natural justice have not been followed and Martyn now faces a prohibitively expensive internal tribunal.

Friends and colleagues are invited to contribute so as to help Martyn as he has helped so many others. Funds are needed in the near future to off-set high legal bills. Working with GoFundMe, I can ensure that all donations will go to Martyn.

Dear Generous Contributors,
It felt like the time to provide some feedback on the giving and some idea about why the total for the campaign has been changed to £60,000.00. It is a story of good news and bad news.
The good news is that we are approaching the original total of £30,000.00 very quickly. Donations have ranged from £5.00 to £5,000.00 and everything in between. Every penny is of the greatest value. As of midday 13th November, over 170 people have donated, and literally thousands have looked at the site. I pray that they too may be able to donate.
The bad news is that the College have acted in such a way, that Martyn has now incurred very substantial extra legal fees. I cannot believe that the story is unfolding the way it is, because like so many others I have benefitted so much from Martyn's teaching and friendship. He is a genuinely 'good thing' and as you have all demonstrated, should be valued.
In thanking you once more for your donations, I would ask that you encourage others, where you can, to also donate. For information, donations can be received in any currency and will be converted into GBP for Martyn to draw down as and when. I will update you again in about a weeks time, unless there is some major development on the donation front before that.
With all good wishes
Tom (donations co-ordinator)
