International Justice Mission (IJM) is the largest anti-slavery organisation in the world – working to protect the world’s poorest from violence. Back in 2017 we ran an event called ‘Just Ride’ – where a team of cyclists cycled the Hebridean Way (185 miles in 3 days) fundraising for our work – they raised over £15,000 (enough to fund three entire rescue operations of people from slavery!). Due to its success, we are running the event again this year! From 14th-16th September a team of 12 of us will be cycling from Vatersay to the Butt of Lewis, and to celebrate, we are having an event at the Woodlands Centre Café to finish!
We are holding an ‘Evening of Storytelling’, on Monday 16th September, 19:30-21:00. The evening will be very relaxed, with light refreshments and stories from International Justice Mission (IJM) from the frontline of the fight against modern slavery, from the ‘Just Ride’ cyclists and an open mic for any attendees who want to share local stories.
Tickets are free, but for numbers we would appreciate people registering via Eventbrite.
