Thank you everyone who took part in our raffle in support of Black Lives Matter.

 

Due to the recent and devastating events that have led to the death of George Floyd, mind the cork  and other small local businesses held a raffle and raised £569.00!

 

All proceeds were donated to Stephen Lawrence Trust, an organisation founded after the murder of Stephen Lawrence in a racist attack in 1993. They are dedicated to furthering the opportunities available to young people from underrepresented and disadvantaged backgrounds.

 

Our social media platforms have given us a voice to spread awareness on the matter and help make a difference.We hope our raffle helped shed light on the racial inequalities that exist in our society and encourage people to educate themselves further on this matter.

 

Education is the key step in this process of combating racism.
