We have speakers and invite other unions to attend. We also present a cheque to the Mesothelioma Research Fund which does a lot of good work helping those who have contacted this killer disease, usually caused by breathing asbestos at work, and funding research into a cure. We raised over £1000 for the fund last year and over the past few years we raised over £11000.
