Story

UPDATE 1 - We have met our first target of £3,000 (set as it is the average cost of a funeral) However, as Laura leaves behind a teenage daughter, the more we give then the more support she has.

THANK YOU for your generosity, let's keep giving. Laura wouldn't have stopped, and neither should we.

**********************************************

Laura Lee was a fighter, an activist, a friend, a mum and a pain in the Oireachtas arse.

She went through so much; she was exposed, abused by the press and had her life turned upside down just so that she could fight for the decriminalisation of sex workers - a fight she never gave up on.

She was an advocate, and would help anyone who asked for guidance and support.

Laura was one of the most fiercest, but friendliest people I was ever lucky enough to meet. She loved to laugh and make jokes. She had such a way of making people feel at ease, even though we were all so much in awe of her.

She worked so hard to help and never asked for anything back. This is our chance to say 'Thank You', to let her family know she will always be remembered, and she was, is and always will be an inspiration to many more who will keep the fight going for Laura's Law.

Laura was spirited, kind, beautiful....but above all, she hated nuns.

    I had the great pleasure and honour of knowing Laura for a number of years. She was a great friend to me, always there to support me when I needed someone. The world has lost a one in googol !!

    I only met Laura in person a couple of times, but will always remember her fondly.I always took time to follow her campaigns and it is only right that we help carry on her fight.
