Campaign Group Celebrations
A local charity set up to fight for the rights of asbestos sufferers recently celebrated its 30th anniversary.
Clydebank Asbestos Group (CAG) was established in 1992 by local volunteers and has worked tirelessly to seek justice for the victims of asbestos-related illnesses and their families.
As part of the anniversary celebrations, CAG commissioned an animated video which tells the story of Clydebank Asbestos Group from its origins to the present day, this can be viewed on their Facebook page.
Their newly published book ‘Asbestos and Clydebank’ which shares first-hand accounts of the impact asbestos had on people working in the Clyde shipyards and industries, was also launched at the 30th-anniversary event.
Copies of the book are available from their office at 24 Kilbowie Road, Clydebank or call 0141 951 1008 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
