On Monday 6th June we recieved a call telling us that John Robinson, DDA Watch supporter, volunteer and friend had passed away.
Johns name may not ring bells with many as John didnt step out in the limelight but many of our supporters have met John. He was a driving force behind DDA Watch having been working alongside us before we even had a proper name. The very first vigil held for Bruce outside the Northern Ireland office was organised by John in just two weeks. If you received an email in response to the Saving Bruce campaign, you got your email from John.
If you attended Not Guilty! in 2010 you attended because John helped organise it. If you saw any of the tv or radio interviews you saw them because John calmed us down beforehand and helped us make sure we didnt mess it up. If you have been on our website and found it useful you have John to thank. He donated and designed and maintained the website.
If you think we can help get a repeal of BSL you think that because we had John always there, holding us up and pushing us on. He believed we could do it.
John was a true hero we were honoured to know and love and I know many felt the same way.
John will be making his final journey at 1pm on Monday 20th June. If you would like to say goodbye please attend:
Putney Vale Cemetery
and afterwards at
Kingston Lodge Hotel
Kingston upon Thames
Everyone is welcome. No flowers but if people would like to make a donation in Johns Memory the two closest to Johns heart were
We will miss you John xx
