JU­LIAN Dunker­ton, the co-founder of Su­perdry, is to fund free coach travel from Chel­tenham to Lon­don for the anti-brexit Peo­ple’s Vote March for the Fu­ture.

The man who de­vel­oped Chel­tenham-based chain Cult Cloth­ing be­fore co-found­ing fash­ion brand Su­perdry, is just one of a host of well­known names who will fund a coach to take peo­ple to the cap­i­tal on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 20.

Ac­tors, mu­si­cians, broad­cast­ers, busi­ness peo­ple, co­me­di­ans, sports stars, writ­ers and politi­cians each agreed to pay more than £1,000 for a coach tak­ing Peo­ple’s Vote sup­port­ers to Lon­don.

Mr Dunker­ton said: “This cam­paign is for peo­ple to voice their con­cerns on what is likely to be un­ful­filled prom­ises on Brexit.

“On Oc­to­ber 20, we need to get as many peo­ple from all over the coun­try, to de­mand a fi­nal say on the fu­ture for ev­ery­one ir­re­spec­tive of their sta­tus.

“The British peo­ple should not be un­der­es­ti­mated! Let them judge the fi­nal-out­come.”

Mr Dunker­ton has given £1m to the cam­paign for a Peo­ple’s Vote to en­sure that the govern­ment’s Brexit deal is put be­fore the coun­try in a pub­lic vote.

Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May has ruled out a sec­ond ref­er­en­dum, say­ing the vote in June 2016 was the ‘peo­ple’s vote’.

Bri­tain is due to leave the Eu­ro­pean Union on March 29, 2019 - al­most three years af­ter the EU Ref­er­en­dum which saw the UK vote 52 per cent to 48 per cent in favour of leav­ing.
