The Assembly House Trust were delighted to support The St.Thomas Trust and their event ‘An Evening To Bring Freedom’.
Social Action Development Worker Annabeth Taylor reports on the evening:
“With the generous support of The Assembly House Trust, STN Trust was delighted to host ‘An Evening to Bring Freedom’ at The Assembly House on 9th February 2019.
STN Trust is an agent of change, working to bring freedom to those who are enslaved by their circumstances. We journey with individuals carrying the burdens of slavery, addiction, debt, poverty, violence, crime, an absence of or under-education, supporting them to transform their lives. We also work to raise awareness of modern slavery, both here in Norfolk and beyond, and this was the focus of ‘An Evening to Bring Freedom’.
‘An Evening to Bring Freedom’ gave us the opportunity to share with our guests our response to the pressing issue of modern slavery, as well as giving a taster of our work in the form of a spoken word film ‘The Face of Freedom’, produced for one of our awareness raising initiatives.
The evening also included a performance of the song ‘Rise Up’ by Megan Rawling and a prize draw with two pieces of art painted and given specifically for the event and inspired by our work combatting modern slavery, as well as a framed print of a photograph taken on our most recent trip to Kolkata, India during the pilot of ‘Sajil’s Story’, a project raising awareness of modern slavery.
It was a privilege to be able to host our event at such a beautiful venue, and the staff were incredibly helpful, welcoming and professional.”
