On the twelfth anniversary of the death of Mikey Powell, who died in the custody of West Midlands Police, campaigning news group 4WardEver UK, which was launched on 1st June 2006 by his cousin Tippa Naphtali, will be launching the National Mikey Powell Memorial Family Fund appeal.

The Fund is being developed in conjunction with the Friends of Mikey Powell Campaign, The United Families & Friends Campaign and Migrant Media.

Organisers also acknowledge the late Pauline Campbell who died in May 2008.

The fund will be the first permanent national resource of its kind for those affected by deaths in custody, making small grants available for families and their campaign groups across the UK to provide practical domestic assistance, to further the work of their own campaigns or to assist them in engaging in other local, regional or national campaigns, events and initiatives.
