Norfolk Christian duo will walk to fight slavery 

FreedomWalkPamClaire450Two South Norfolk Christians are set to raise money for a charity dedicated to fighting the scourge of modern-day slavery by completing a Walk for Freedom on July 19 and are inviting others to join them.

 
Pam Halstead (from Gt Moulton Evangelical Chapel) and her friend Claire Taylor (from Carleton Rode Baptist Church) are set to raise cash for charity The A21 Campaign, after hearing its founder Christine Caine speak at a London Colour Conference, a women’s event organised by Hillsong church. The duo says they were deeply touched by the fate of the victims of modern day slavery and have pledged to do what they can to raise money for this cause.
 
Pam said: “It is an astonishing fact that there are more slaves in the world today than at any other time - 27 million with an average age of 12 years. Men, women and children are exploited for manual and sexual labour, against their will, and only 1-2% are ever rescued. It is the world’s fastest growing criminal industry, affecting every nation across the globe.”
 
The A21 Campaign is committed to abolishing human trafficking and working with victims.
 
As a start to their fundraising initiatives, Pam and Claire are organising a Sponsored ‘Walk for Freedom’, at Whitlingham Country Park, on the outskirts of Norwich, on Saturday July 19 at 1.30pm. They would love to see lots of people turning up on this day to give their support and receive sponsorship for this good cause.
 
Anyone interested can contact Pam or Claire on 01379 674341 or 01953 788598 or e-mail  stevenhalstead@talktalk.net.
 
But you can just come along on the day. If the weather is fine, bring a picnic. The walk will go ahead whatever the weather.
