Sponsored ramble in aid of The Sophie Lancaster Foundation

Mick Moss, myself, and a few others are going on a sponsored ramble in Wales next weekend to raise money for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Sophie and her boyfriend Robert Maltby were kicked, stamped on and left unconscious – for nothing more than looking different. Sophie later died from her injuries.

Following the horrific murder of Sophie Lancaster, her family wanted to ensure a lasting legacy to their beautiful, bright creative daughter and so The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was established and it became a registered charity in 2009

The aims and objectives of the Charity are as follows:
  • To create a lasting legacy to Sophie.
  • To provide educational group-works that will challenge the prejudice and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures.
  • To campaign to have the UK Hate Crime legislation extended to include people from “alternative subcultures” or “Lifestyle and Dress”

As always, we have set up an online donation page where it's very simple to sponsor and support the cause.
Thanks in advance!
