Publish Date: 27/08/2008

Liverpool's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Network has established The Michael Causer Fund in memory of Michael Causer, a young gay man from Merseyside, who died on Saturday 2nd August from injuries sustained in what police have described as a homophobic hate incident.

Murder charges are expected to follow against the men arrested in connection with this case and a provisional trial date has been set for the 26th January 2009. Michael's funeral has been delayed for up to twelve weeks pending the results of pathology examinations.

The fund will be used to assist the family of Michael Causer at this time in any appropriate way. To donate to the fund, simply go to the Liverpool Charity & Voluntary Services website (LCVS is the organisation that hosts the Network) Gift aid can be claimed back for any donations made if you are a UK taxpayer.
You can also send a cheque (made payable to "The Michael Causer Fund") to: Liverpool Charity and Voluntary Services, 14 Castle Street, Liverpool L2 0NJ.
