Modern Slavery Events
Modern Slavery Event in Nantwich Town Centre : Saturday 13 October
13 October 2018: Purple Teardrop Day
An Awareness Raising Event was held in Nantwich for Modern Day Anti-Slavery on Saturday 13th October by Nantwich & District Soroptimists. This is the 6th year the group has been holding an event. We were support by our Mayor David Marren. Paul Miller from Libre Solutions also attended. After talking with our President Mrs Nancy Lowe, they thanked us for our work. We held a coffee morning and had a tombola where all the prizes were wrapped in tissue paper so the prize was hidden, as Modern Slavery is a hidden problem.
Is there Modern Slavery in Cheshire?
This was really successful and well attended by many Organisations in Cheshire
Following the film there were excellent presentations and open discussions with the “Slavery in Cheshire Panel” including:
- Representatives from Cheshire Anti-Slavery Network,
- Cheshire Police Slavery Unit,
- The Salvation Army
There was no charge for the evening but donations collected will go to help those suffering from slavery in Nepal and Cheshire
Thank you to all who came
