STATEMENT FROM MCALEESE FAMILY TODAY TO RUSTY FIRMIN
By asaadmin, Oct 8 2020 10:07AM
Just to let you know, I have reviewed the John McAleese Commemoration Society accounts from the December 2019 to the 1st of October 2020. This account was set up in 2017 for fundraising for a campaign but was never used until December 2019 solely for the John McAleese MM Campaign. This was absolutely made clear to everyone at the beginning.
I have absolutely no concerns with the Ancre Somme Association Scotland, no concerns with the “Society” sub campaign group, which you were part of until the 27th of September.
The income and outcome of the accounts are 100% accurate. There are receipts and invoices, there is a full breakdown of all costs.
I am representing the McAleese Family as you well know.
I am asking you to:
1. Take your social media posts and accusations down.
2. Let this Memorial campaign achieve their goal
3. You are upsetting the whole family, please do the right thing for us and John Mac.
Once the stock and merchandise is sold, we will have enough to complete the project.
If you were my Uncle John’s mate as you say, leave us all alone, that includes the team and the voluntary charity which you keep attacking.
If you don’t we will have no option but to make public all factual minutes and all emails between yourself and the Society. This would be very damaging to you, but that’s your decision.
We have thanked Shane and you for your support and we wish you well for the future.
If you want to share this on your Facebook page, to be transparent, feel free.
