Angry campaigners will take the fight to save the remaining Doncaster Council-run care homes to a crucial meeting ahead of a final decision being made.

A representative for what has been named the Caregate campaign will present their petition against the closure of seven council-run care homes, containing over 24,000 signatures, to councillors at a public council meeting.

Councillors will then be given a chance to debate the controversial plans at the meeting, which is due to take place at the Council Chamber from 2pm. 
The debate has been triggered due to the 13,500 signatures initially handed in by the Caregate group in April. The campaign group has enlisted the help of lawyers from Irwin Mitchell and is threatening to apply for a judicial review unless the council have a last-minute change of heart.
