  • Funds raised have been a combination of $ and £’s raised in London, Bermuda and the USA. Donations have been received from people from all walks of life, students, companies and people in power.

  • Run For Freedom 5 km runs held in London and Bermuda and a 5km walk in Florida. For two years we held a poster competition to use the winning entry worldwide when promoting Run For Freedom and raising awareness of people trafficking.
