Trafficking is the fastest growing crime in the world. It shatters the lives of 1.2 million children every year. Every 30 seconds a child is trafficked. He or she will be traumatised possibly for his or her whole life. It costs around £7,000 to rehabilitate a child who has been rescued from trafficking but only £36 to stop this happening in the first place – a no brainer!
From Monday 11 May to Saturday 23 May I shall be walking from Winchester Cathedral to Canterbury Cathedral following the St Swithun’s Way and North Downs Way. I shall be talking along the way about Tearfund’s ‘No Child Taken’ campaign and so the journey should be both physically and mentally challenging.
Anyone is welcome to walk with me for a day along the route. If you are interested in joining me then please contact me on either 020 8898 5714 / 07860 853234 or by email at email@example.com.
Details of my itinerary can be found here:
Every donation received in respect of the walk will help Tearfund’s partners educate people in remote villages about the dangers of trafficking and to teach families how to earn a living and stop the need for children to be taken away. Tearfund partners are working in Nepal where child trafficking is a real danger due to extreme poverty, and now made worse because of the recent earthquake.
Please support this very worthwhile cause.
I have a dedicated online giving site if people wish to support me online. My fundraising page address:
