“No to Hate Crime” Badge Appeal

The 17-24-30 steering group, as part of their fund-raising appeal this year have launched a badge appeal.

They need to raise money to be able help fund this year’s Vigil against Hate Crime in Trafalgar Square (Oct 28th) and to finance some of the projects that the organisation is currently developing.

The No to Hate Crime badges were designed by Sebastian Aird, the graphic designer who has helped freshen up the branding of the campaign this year.

Mark Healey said “Seb’s work is wonderful – it is good to have his support. The badges are a great idea, we just received our first batch of badges which have already started to shift for a relatively small donation of £1 each they should help us raise £1000 for our campaign, and will help us cover some of the costs of the Vigil. It also gives people a chance to show their support by wearing the badges – helping us raise more awareness of what we are doing.”

So far the badges appear to be a success, with £40 raised at the first official fund-raiser last sunday (11th Sept) at the Green Carnation, the event itself raised £1198.46 for 17-24-30 thanks to everyone who took part.

Badges will be available at all the fund-raising events, and each of the trustees has a batch to distribute as well.
