At the Alternative Freshers Fair at Font last week stall holders donated prizes for a raffle to raise money for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation.
Following the horrific murder of Sophie Lancaster, her family wanted to ensure a lasting legacy to their beautiful, bright creative daughter and so The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was established. The foundation provides educational group-works that challenge prejudice and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures.
The Sophie Lancaster Foundation is doing a fantastic job of helping the alternative community to feel safer from prejudice and intolerance. Their aims and achievements resonate deeply with the stallholders and attendees of the fair. Overall, £48 was raised and donated to the foundation.
The raffle has been drawn with the following people winning prizes.
Kate McCann won a year of free entry to Red Cardinal Music events (Deadbolt Club, ZERO CLUB and live events).
Emma Nash won a print from ManchestersGifted.
Tasha Canny won an item from Reap What You Sow.
