Weʼve raised £1,150 to help Strength & Stem - empowering victims of human trafficking.
- Funded on Sunday, 1st December 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are taking on the 3 peaks challenge. That involves climbing the highest peaks of Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scafell Pike) and Wales (Snowdon) in 24 hours. Covering 23 miles (37 kilometres) and 3064 metres (10,052ft) in total ascent.
As we prepare and complete this mighty challenge, we will be raising funds for Strength & Stem, an amazing cause that is very close to our hearts.
Here is little bit of information about the project we have chosen to support, taken directly from the S&S website:
"Strength & Stem is a social enterprise florist that empowers survivors of human trafficking through meaningful employment, life-giving community and skills training"
"There are an estimated 136,000 victims of human trafficking in the UK today. That’s 136,000 individuals who find themselves in the unthinkable situation of being exploited for sexual, domestic or manual labour purposes. Sadly, these people were often exploited whilst pursuing the hope of a brighter future or better employment."
"We are in the process of designing a work experience programme which will upskill survivors across the areas of finance, operations, marketing and strategy in the floristry industry. The programme will be tailored to each survivors’ specific needs and will factor in the personal challenges they often face which may affect their ability to transition into the work environment. We commit to creating several jobs within Strength & Stem for graduates of our work experience programme."
"In addition, we will deliver regular Community Floristry Workshops for free. These workshops will also cater for survivors who might be unable to work. In the long term, these will be funded by profit reinvested from the business’ trading activities."
Help us help them in our efforts to successfully complete the 3 peaks challenge in 24 hours and raise money for this amazing cause.
