Hope for Justice Charity Dinner 2014

Hope for Justice 2014

In November 2014, The Royal School held its first Head Girl’s Charity Dinner - the culmination of the equally novel Human Rights Week held at the School.  The Dinner was in support of Hope for Justice, a charity that fights against Human Trafficking.  Also known as modern-day slavery, it is the unlawful transportation of persons, usually for the purposes of forced labour or commercial sexual exploitation - an abhorrent abuse of Human Rights that robs people of their freedom and dignity.  Head Girl, Sheila Bamugemereire, chose Hope for Justice because it is committed to bringing deliverance to those who have been forced into unfathomably degrading situations - it rescues and rehabilitates victims of Human Trafficking, whilst also prosecuting their traffickers.

The Charity Dinner was attended by students, parents, friends of the school and Paul Garner, the Head of Operations at Hope for Justice.  His story highlighted the impact that a small group of people can have on numerous lives but also underpinned the fact that we each have a gift that can be used to help bring positive change about.  The money raised throughout the Human Rights Week amounted to over £2,600, and this was only possible due to the generosity of the students, staff, parents and friends of the school.  An incredible sum of money that will change lives.  Money, however, was not the only generous contribution made, as many people sacrificed a great deal of time and energy to make the whole week a success.

Tony & Viv Jackson, Trustees for Hope for Justice, were very grateful to the Royal School for their generosity and enterprise in hosting the Dinner, and also thanked Coomers for donating towards a magnum of champagne, given to the person who made the highest pledge.  The actual money pledged was around £1,500.
