Donate to the campaigning work of NNA

NNA welcomes donations from individuals and organisations to support our campaigning work. We are however unable to accept such donations from manufacturers and distributors of nicotine products.

Here's an email we sent yesterday to all our Supporters.  Please sign up to support us if you haven't already. 

Dear NNA supporter,

Here’s a quick update. We apologise for not sending more of these emails, there simply isn’t enough time to keep you informed as well as we would like. Do please get in touch though if you would like to speak with us, you can email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Ringing in the changes
Gerry Stimson has been chair of NNA since NNA was first registered as a charity in 2015 (and prior to that too) and so recently decided it was time to pass the baton to someone else. Under Gerry’s stewardship NNA has grown into a very successful advocacy organisation and running NNA now entails a considerable amount of work, so the Board of Trustees has decided to create the new position of Vice Chair, in addition to Chair. Please join us in welcoming Sarah Jakes as our new Chair and Kevin Molloy as Vice Chair. Sarah will be “the face” of NNA and Kevin will be taking on the day to day running of the organisation, both will be supported by our hard working trustees and by our administrator. We are delighted that Gerry has agreed to stay on as trustee and we are all looking forward to taking NNA to the next level.

Snus ban challenge hearing at the European Court of Justice 25 January
Gerry and others went to the ECJ in Luxembourg for the snus ban challenge hearing. The Advocate General will give his opinion on 18 April and the final decision will be announced some time after that. You can read more about the hearing in our blog post here. A very exciting recent development is the #EUforSnus movement, please join the EUforsnus Facebook group and follow @EUforSnus on Twitter if you can. What we heard at the ECJ demonstrated that we vapers and we snus users share a lot of common ground - and that we will be so much more powerful if we join together to assert our right as adults to choose reduced risk nicotine products. You can find our snus campaign pages here.

Challenging prohibition
We have been campaigning against vaping bans (see our pages here). We have contacted a lot of businesses ourselves, and have had some modest successes. To really make it work though we need your help, find out what you can do here.  Vaping bans are not just inconvenient to vapers - more critically, they send out the dangerous message that vaping is as risky to health as smoking is. Please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like a “Considerate vaping welcome” or “Vaping welcome” sticker to give to a business, the artwork for stickers is also downloadable here. We are also very keen to speak to someone who might be able to help with building a map of vape friendly venues.

Glasgow School of Vape 4
GSO4 was on 28th January and went incredibly well, thanks to NNA trustee Andy Morrison and Associates Eddie Black and Vic Mullin. The auction raised over £500 for NNA, a big thank you to everyone who contributed.

Meeting you
We are really pleased to have been invited back to Vape Jam and Vaper Expo this year, so please do come and find us. We are grateful to the organisers of the events for making us so welcome and giving us the opportunity to be there and to meet up with our Supporters. We hope to see you there.

Best wishes,

The NNA team
