Frodsham Churches Together joined forces with the Soroptimists at the Cheshire Show to raise awareness of Human Trafficking. This involved a 'Street Art' display from 'Stop the Traffic', a large box that people could enter. The outside of the box gave enticing wishes about gaining employment, new skills and money - the inside of the box told the true issues on Human Trafficking. More than 300 people visited the display and the tent and over 200 people signed the petition for 'Stop the Traffic'. The two days at the Cheshire were very hot and the tent provided some cover.
Frodsham Churches Together again joined forces with the Soroptimists at the Parish Hall for an 'Open Coffee Morning'. Again we saw a lot of people and money was raised for the Victims of Human Trafficking.
In the Park
Churches in Frodsham were represented at the Open day in the Park. One of the activities, Face Painting, raised further funds for Trafficked Victims. The weather started warm and sunny. However, we all appreciated the tent when a downpour came. We were very pleased to offer our Member of Parliament, Mr Graham Evans, cover from the rain! Through our activities this summer, £300 has been sent to City Hearts, a UK charity that provides direct support to Victims of Trafficking.
