Justin Abbott  
What is your role?
Various.  Chair, the Mudchute Association.  Strategic Adviser, Union Cycliste Internationale.  Member of the CAF Venturesome Investment Committee

Where do you work?
The Mudchute Association.  Union Cycliste Internationale.  CAF Venturesome Investment Committee

What is your ‘Good Fight’?
Fair funding and a higher profile for the Mudchute to enable us to deliver more of our enormous potential. The Mudchute brings the invaluable experience of nature and countryside into one of the most deprived parts of London, as well as employment for fifty local people and training for many more.  With 35 acres of protected open space our potential is huge and our users are many.  We’re strong as we are but with fairer funding and a stronger profile we could achieve so much more.

What do you need to realise your goal?
We need a smart campaign to provide political and high profile top cover to us so that we give our cause the attention it deserves without compromising relationships, in particular with our landlord, LBTH.
