Fundraisers Generous Donation to Jericho Foundation Following the Great Midlands Fun Run

Great Midlands Fun Run Real Life Church Whole Team with DiggerJericho Foundation is extremely grateful to members of Real Life Church for their generous donation of £1,500.

Members of the Church decided to raise money for Jericho by running this year’s Great Midlands Fun Run.

Jericho works with a wide range of disadvantaged local people experiencing barriers to employment, training and social integration. One of the disadvantaged groups we support is people who have been victims of modern slavery. Human trafficking appears to be on the increase and it is estimated that there are currently between 10,000 and 20,000 victims of human slavery in the UK. According to the National Crime Agency 895 potential victims (of 88 different nationalities) were referred in to the National Referral Mechanism during January to March 2016 alone.

We have therefore decided to put this donation towards our ‘Labour for Change’ programme, which supports victims of modern day slavery. We have recently launched a fundraising campaign to support the development of this programme, but currently demand is vastly exceeding the funds we have available, so this donation will help us support more victims of this terrible crime.

If you would like:

  • More information on the range of services and support we provide; or
