The Body Shop: Anti-Slavery Day 18th October


"If you thought slavery was abolished in the UK in 1834 you are very much mistaken! With more than 2.5 million people trafficked every year, human trafficking is the world’s third-largest criminal industry after illegal drugs and guns, with a staggering 1.2 million children and young people are estimated to be trafficked each year and sexually abused."

Tomorrow (Monday 18th October), coinciding with the European Union’s Anti-Trafficking Day we all should take some time to help out and do some good. If you can spare a moment then please sign The Body Shop's petition calling for the government to put it place greater care and protection for child victims:
