Sack Slavery

Earlier this year Red Community and Manumit Coffee Roasters conspired to dream up a creative way of marking Anti Slavery Day 2018. We came up with Sack Slavery!

We have challenged dozens of local artists and creatives and young people and survivors of modern slavery to create works of art around the theme of Freedom using coffee sacks as a canvas to be displayed at a special exhibition.

  • Art exhibition

Riding Wales For Human Trafficking

Calling all abolitionists, fitness fanatics and riders of bicycles:

Join our team of 2-wheeled freedom fighters for 4 days of adventure this summer as we cycle the length of Wales to raise awareness of human trafficking whilst simultaneously raising money for 2 incredible frontline justice ministries: IJM and AIM.

'Riding Wales For Human Trafficking' will run between Thursday 25th - Sunday 28th August and will look something roughly like this:

Day 1 = Holyhead to Barmouth (73 miles, 7-8 hours)
Day 2 = Barmouth to Rhayader (57 miles, 7 hours)
Day 3 = Rhayader to Merthyr Tydfil (63 miles, 7 hours)
Day 4 = Merthyr Tydfil to Cardiff (26 miles, 4 hours)

Total: 220 miles 

We are looking to build a team of 20 riders who are each committed to raising a minimum of £500 in sponsorship, covering all their own costs (including food and 1 night's accommodation at £20) and engaging in awareness-raising evenings at each of the destinations (except 1). If we pull this off it will guarantee a minimum of £10,000 raised for IJM and AIM and also help to shine a light on human trafficking and modern slavery right across Wales.

If you'd like to sponsor the team and make a donation, you can do so here.
