“Hate Crime – it’s no joke!” was the punch-line for the fund-raiser we held at the Two Brewers last weekend (Sunday 1st April).
The aim of the event to raise funds to help cover the costs of organising this year’s April Acts of Remembrance, as well as funding this summers Hate Crime Awareness Campaign leading to the next London Vigil against Hate Crime.
“Thanks to everyone who came down and took part in tonight’s event, we really appreciate your support. It may not seem like this event makes a great change in the scheme of things but it really does.
It helps us raise awareness of what hate crime is and the impact that it has on members of our communities.
It enables us to promote existing services, and means that we have the funds available to organise and facilitate the April acts of remembrance – so that members of our communities are always there to stand side by side with those who have been affected by hate crime.”
