Anti-Slavery International runs for freedom in the British 10k in London!

This year we had a team of 8 running for freedom. In an uncertain world, these runners and their supporters did something truly amazing to support the beneficiaries of our work. Thank you all for your energy and enthusiasm!

Cambridge RAG Charitea Party

The Cambridge Rag ChariTea Party raised £3,000 in just one day! The event took place on 9th June 2017 in the field of a local farmer just outside Cambridge. Over 500 students attended and enjoyed activities as creative and varied as massage, henna, face paint, portrait cartoon drawing, magic, stand-up comedy, music, and animal interest.

Together, and throughout the whole year, the 40 members of the Cambridge Rag Committee have raised well over £50,000 for 10 charities, including Anti-Slavery International.

Glasgow fundraises for freedom!

March 25 2016, the International Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, offers the opportunity to honour and remember those who suffered and died at the hands of the brutal slavery system. It also raises awareness about the dangers of racism, discrimination and modern day slavery.

To commemorate this day and to coincide with Good Friday, our Glasgow Anti-Slavery Group hosted an evening of vegan food, capoeira and talks from the civil rights demonstrator and Revered Dr Iain Whyte, the historian Dr Stephen Mullen and our Glasgow group leader Laura Wood.

The event had a great attendance and we hope it will inspire many to action. Glasgow supporters: please get in touch with our Glasgow Group to find out how you can get involved. 




My Mind is Free

Anti-Slavery International was the beneficiary of three performances of the Rah Rah Theatre ‘My Mind is Free’. The main target of the show was to raise awareness on human trafficking. A trailer of this play is available here .

St Helena celebrates their history and supports Anti-Slavery

 

We are very happy to see what our supporters in the South Atlantic Ocean have been doing! Every year the remote island of St Helena celebrates its role in ending the ‘Middle Passage’ Atlantic Slave Trade. This year Hartford Primary School , one of the island’s three primary schools, entered a float to celebrate 1840, the year that the Vice-Admiralty Court was set up on St Helena to adjudicate against captured slave ships. Before the day of the parade the children attended a special assembly to hear about slavery, they then did a collection and sent us a very kind donation.

Cape Town to London cycle challenge

Braving temperatures that reached over 40°C, deserts without roads and sand storms, recent graduates Nick Stanhope, Rebecca Gowland and Rob Hadman cycled from Cape Town, South Africa to London, with their support driver and photographer Jonathan Felix and Jonny Polonsky.
Throughout the six-month challenge they met people who had been in slavery and some of our partners, and raised over £30,000 for our work.

Liberty Ball

After hearing that slavery still exists, Anna Cofone and Ruth Powys held a photo exhibition and a ball in support of Anti-Slavery International, raising £12,500 towards our work against slavery around the world. Guests enjoyed an exciting array of entertainment ranging from fire-eaters to international music performances, and an auction that included a scarf from Linda McCartney's personal collection, tickets to TV's Pop Idol and photographs of freedom donated by over 20 photographers.

Drum wake

Local supporter Rakesh Parmar organised a drum wake to mark the continuing fight against modern forms of slavery, raising £618 towards our work. Up to 20 drummers took to the stage at the Music Café in Leicester - a city with strong links to the 19th century abolitionist movement.

Three decades of support from Exmouth

Graham Martin from Exmouth raised nearly £2,000 at his 30th annual Anti-Slavery International garden party in July 2008. The event involved live music and food and attracted scores of people.
