POA Circulars

175 | 20.12.2012

Murder of Prison Officer David Black in Northern Ireland

Further to POA circular 142-2012 requesting members or branches wishing to make a donation to David’s family at this sad time do so by forwarding their donations to the Finance Officer at Cronin House.

This circular is to advise the membership that the total donations received amounted to £2875.65. This money has been forwarded to David’s widow Yvonne on behalf of the membership with our condolences.

I would like to personally thank each and every member and branch that contributed to the collections throughout the UK. Once again members of the union have shown that the words Unity is Strength are not just a motto they have real meaning.


Yours sincerely


General Secretary
