It was my 50th Birthday on the 13th January 2020 and I would like to raise at least £500 for 17-24-30 National Hate Crime Awareness Week.
This would cover the cost of organisinging 20 volunteer sessions.
Volunteer Sessions take place on Tuesday afternoons in New Cross Gate, South London.
Each year our volunteers help organise;April Acts of Remembrance #AARTo mark the anniversaries of the three nail bomb attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho. This involves outreach in Brixton on the 17th April and Brick Lane on the 24th April. On the 30th April each year we organise a small gathering in St Anne's Gardens in Soho (usually attended by over a hundred people). The charity takes the first part of its name 17-24-30 from the dates of the three attacks.
https://nationalhcaw.uk/april-acts-of-remembranceNational Hate Crime Awareness Week #NationalHCAWWe organise and coordinate the national week (hence the second part of our name). The national week takes place between the second to third Saturday in October each year. We organise a service of Hope and Remembrance for those affected by hate crime on the Sunday (after the second October Saturday) at St Paul's Cathedral. The week aims to encourage local authorities (police and councils), key partners and communities affected by hate crime to work together to tackle local hate crime issues. We encourage people to register hate crime awareness events they are organising around the UK so we can place markers on our National Hate Crime Google map.
