Please help the recently unemployed Sark islanders

Via this charity website, I have just sent a donation for the Christmas appeal for those Sark residents recently thrown out of their jobs.

The appeal is being run by The Submarine Charitable Trust which "was set up in Guernsey in 2005. The Trust is registered with the Association of Guernsey Charities and its charitable status is recognised by the States of Guernsey Income Tax Department."

I encourage others to do the same. Particularly if you respect democracy.

140 out of 600 islanders have been thrown out of their jobs, in some cases also their homes, with no welfare system to help them.

All because the Barclay Brothers didn't like the recent election results.
