6) Can you give us donation to support our work? Mark has set up a Sponsor Me page for donations to the 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign.


As a small charity registered with HMRC Ref XT30898 and run entirely by volunteers we have an annual turnover of approximately £2,000 per year.

In the past three years we have sponsored and distributed 40,000 hate crime reporting cards.

There is so much more we could do if we have more funds available.

7) Can you encourage others to get involved in #NHCAW this year? This year we are encourage everyone to contact their local authorities (Police and Council) to ask them what they are doing to promote #NHCAW this year.

In London 17-24-30 has written an Open Letter to every London Borough Councillor across the 32 London Boroughs and representatives of the City Of London.


We have also submitted Freedom of Information requests to find out what the London Boroughs and the City of London are doing to tackle Hate Crime in their areas.


Please feel welcome to share this e-mail and information with your friends, families, colleagues and networks where appropriate.

Thank you for your on-going support
