Will You Help The Master Get Out Of Jail (All In A Good Cause!)

Company News

The Master writes “I have been summoned by the Right Honourable the Lord Mayor, Alderman Charles Bowman and the Lady Mayoress, Samantha Bowman to attend London’s top criminal court, The Old Bailey, on Friday 6 July 2018 where I will be arrested and charged (for crimes yet unknown) and then taken to The Tower of London where I will be incarcerated pending payment of £1,000 bail.

Provided I raise at least £1,000 (in aid of the British Red Cross) then I will be released later that day. However, failure to pay the appropriate amount could result in indefinite detention (and an inability to complete my duties as Master of the Worshipful Company of Plumbers).

I would be grateful for any support which Liverymen and friends are able to provide me to help me to reach my target. The simplest way to support me is to make a donation through Virgin Money Giving Accounts. If you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 25% in tax will be added to your donation through the gift aid system at no extra cost to you.
