Raise the roof progress report

Reading time:

I’ve been away from the office for a few days (mostly without either mobile reception or email access) so it was a pleasant surprise to arrive back this morning and see where we’d got to with the Raise the Roof Campaign.

We got some great press mentions for Raise the Roof over the weekend, including The Independent on Sunday and The Sunday Mirror and the campaign has started getting wider coverage online on sites such as This is Money. We’re up to 3,700 signatures on the petition too and more are coming in every day.

After our delivery of hundreds of letters and briefing documents to MPs and members of the Lords last week we’re also starting to get responses via email and letter – several people who signed the petition also got in touch to let me know they’d also written to their MP about the campaign so word around Westminster is starting to spread.

If any of you write blogs or use social media such as Twitter and Facebook on a regular basis then it would be great if you could help spread the word – things are really starting to move now so we can’t afford to lose momentum.

Thanks again for all your support to those of you who have signed the petition or been in touch. As always we’ll keep you updated as to the campaign’s progress.
