I’m Phil Rimmer, and I’m really pleased to be able to write to you as I come to the end of my time as a member of conscience’s Executive Committee. I’m writing to ask you to help us by sending us a gift of £20 today.
I’ve been involved with campaigning for the right not to pay for war since 1988, and I’ve worked with conscience as a staff member, a volunteer and a member of the Executive Committee.
Over the years I’ve known so many people who passionately believe in working for a more peaceful world. People who give their time, their money and their care. It’s not easy to face such a huge challenge and still feel like I can make a difference as just one person. I guess you might feel that way too.
But my years in the peace movement have shown me time and time again just how much people care about taking actions that will contribute towards bringing about a more peaceful world than the one we live in today.
As Sarah in Derby says, “The world will be a peaceful place when we put into peacebuilding the resources we now give to killing each other.” This is what I’ve worked towards for so many years. I’m proud to be part of this campaign and I hope you are too. I think it’s essential that a campaigning organisation exists whose focus is on attaining the right not to pay for war and killing.
conscience can’t do it without you. We’re incredibly lucky to have such dedicated, loyal supporters and volunteers. Your support makes a real difference to our work. We’re a small but determined campaign, and every gift we receive makes a genuine difference to how much we can do.
Please help us to keep campaigning for the right not to pay for killing, for war and for the preparations for war.
Please use the enclosed form to send us a gift of £20 today.
Thank you very much for your kind support, and for believing that the world can be a more peaceful place.
