  2. I certainly agree Jim deserves to be honoured for the thousands of hours he has dedicated to assisting fathers. I’m sorry that this was such short notice.

    Who is behind “Save our Families”?

    Is it a real organisation?

    What are they promoting?

  3. As well as direct helping of fathers, Jim Bagnall has clarified many ideas and also brought speakers together for seminars that he has funded. These seminars have brought many people together and also brought many men into the various parts of men’s movement. I remember seminars on self representation and child support. I am sure that there were others, before I knew about him. These seminars and relationships developed will have a long term impact. Thanks, MurrayBacon.

  4. I am sorry Short notice and distance prevent myself or any of my colleagues from CYFSTALK from attending. We all acknowledge Jim’s work over many years, and his contribution to men, and their families. Thanks Jim, It was an honor being on the same side.

  5. Hi John, as I understand it, Save Our Families was recently started by Julian Price, Kerry Bevin and unknown others. The name has been used by overseas groups but we have seen no information about its policies etc. No doubt we will hear more about it on Sunday night.

  6. Jim has put himself right in the firing line and stoically endured substantial personal sacrifice in standing up publicly for fathers and families. I won’t be there as I’m overseas at present, but acknowledge my appreciation for the tremendous work Jim has done nonetheless.

  9. My heartfelt good wishes to Jim. A tireless campaigner and a wonderful man that has given so much to our country. I am genuinely very disappointed that I will not be able to make it.
