On 11th August 2007, Sophie Lancaster and her boyfriend were kicked, stamped on and left unconscious, for nothing more than looking different. Sophie later died from her injuries. Sophie was just 20 years old. 

About the charity

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 and it became a registered charity in 2009. We do this through various means including education.
