The annual United Families and Friends Campaign (UFFC) held its annual march in central London on Saturday 26 October 2019. With co-ordination from Ken Fero, of Migrant Media, and other supporters they also helped the National Mikey Powell Memorial Family Fund (NMPMFF) to raise £180.00 selling promotional badges to over 60 of the people that attended the event.

The NMPMFF will be the first permanent national resource of its kind specifically for those that are affected by deaths in custody.
