MG Rover trust fund


As you may have seen in the local news, yesterday the trustees of the MG Rover trust fund visited the Acorns hospice in Selly Oak to officially present Acorns with a donation of £23,000.

This comes at the end of the long and sad saga of the trust fund set up for former MG Rover workers when the company collapsed in 2005.

In light of this I wanted to share again this article, which I wrote for the Bromsgrove Standard last November.
