VISI’S WORLD PRESENTATION

Our lovely Visi’s World Coordinator visited Kells and Connor Primary School in Ballymena last week, to give a presentation in assembly about the Visi’s World Education Pack.  The principal was in touch later that day to thank her: ‘Thank you again for your assembly this morning which was pitched really well for the children in our school. The resources look great in the pack and the little video clip works on school system. Good luck with your work in the future.’ At IT we believe it is vitally important to teach children about human trafficking in a child friendly manner.  We believe the Visi’s World Pack gives teachers the appropriate tools to […]

INVISIBLE TRAFFICK ATTEND HILLSBOROUGH GARDEN PARTY

Invisible Traffick was invited to Hillsborough Castle Garden Party on the 7th of September 2017. It was a cold, raining and a blustery day at Hillsborough Castle last Thursday, however when HRH Prince Harry arrived he brought a warmth to the day. He was accompanied by Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP and Arlene Foster MLA. Prince Harry assisted in the planting of an apple tree and all the guests who were budding photographers were earnestly trying to capture every glance of the Prince on camera! Invisible Traffick is continuing to spread the awareness of Human Trafficking and was speaking with Secretary of State James Brokenshire about the work of Invisible […]

CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC

Anyone who knows me well will know I am a TOTAL bargain hunter. My dad has always said that my mum would walk an extra mile to save 1p on a tin of beans and I definitely take after her. Today I was in River Island and saw the most gorgeous dress (I loved it, others may beg to differ). It was black with brightly covered florals over it and even better, it was on sale! I tried it on and fell totally in love….. apart from the fact it was too big!  (P.S. sorry to any male readers out there – this is turning into a big of a […]

INVISIBLE TRAFFICK ON BBC NEWS

On Thursday the 10th August BBC News showed a documentary on Modern Day Slavery in Britian.  The film included one mans story of being exploitated for labour for 4 months, describing his ordeal as ‘just horrible’.  See his full video here. Also feautured in the documentary was Invisible Traffick GB’s very own consellor.  This lady works very closely alongside the women in Tamar House (ITGB’s safe house for female survivors of sexual explitation), in the hope of helping survivors to work through the traumatic ordeals they have  been through.  She is one of an amazing team of volunteers working to help the women go onto to lead independent lives.  We are […]

INVISIBLE TRAFFICK DOES STRICTLY COME DANCING

It was ‘Strictly’ the best foot forward for Invisible Traffick at the beginning of April, with our very first ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ competition. It was an evening packed full of guys, girls, glitz and glamour at the Culloden Hotel, which was throughly enjoyed by everyone who attended. We would like to extend a massive thank you to our very own volunteer and dance enthusiast, Debi Vauls, who did a fantastic job of organising the event under the guidance of ‘Ballroom Blitz.’ Under the glitter ball, twelve couples bravely went head to head and toe to toe, to perform a variety of classic ballroom dances, ranging from the Samba to the […]

DUBROVNIK HALF MARATHON

At the end of April, two of our amazing supporters, Andrea McCormick and Lisa Crawford ran in the Dubrovnik Half Marathon in Croatia. They both ran 13.1 miles as part of the David Hanna Fitness Team in aid of Invisible Traffick and raised an incredible £457.20. These girls deserve a massive round of applause, not only for completing the half marathon, but also for raising this fantastic amount of money; all of which will go towards the work of Invisible Traffick and our mission of eradicating human trafficking! Thank you to everyone who supported them and well done girls! SHARE THIS
