Superdry founder funding coach travel for anti-brexit march
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.
