The article reports that Tourism Concern has raised 17,500 pound after appealing for help to save the organisation. Director Tricia Barnett first appealed for 40,000 pound to keep the responsible tourism charity from closing down before Christmas. She has now launched the 100 Appeal, which aims to raise 100,000 pound, to safeguard its future next year. Half the money already raised has been donated by the trade, and the other half from human rights backer, the Margaret Hayman Charitable Trust.
