Piper Alpha: Charity faced down fundraising ‘cliff edge’ ahead of memorial service

The charity that ensures upkeep of the Piper Alpha memorial gardens has said it faced down a “cliff edge” for fundraising opportunities as the Covid outbreak took hold.

Pound for Piper trustee Dan Byrne said the last year has been “extremely hard” for all charities, including his, as lockdown had a “big impact” on annual events and volunteering efforts.

The oil price crash last year saw also thousands of people losing work from the industry, which had an impact on the trust too.
