Swim Slovenia - help us cross the lakes

Our plan is to swim two lakes this weekend - Lake Bohinj and Lake Bled. We would love to raise as much as possible for Justice & Care - an incredible charity that makes a difference to some of the most vulnerable in society. All your help is appreciated.

Story

There are an estimated 40 million people living in slavery worldwide - at least 100,000 in the UK alone. Modern slavery is the fastest growing crime in the world.

I refuse to stand by and do nothing, which is why I'm fundraising for Justice & Care, an award-winning anti-slavery charity that is bringing freedom to those living in the grip of slavery and empowering them to rebuild their lives.

Justice & Care support victims like Helena*, who was trafficked to the UK into sexual exploitation. She was moved between brothels across numerous cities for nearly three years and forced to work without a break day after day. After being rescued by the police, one of Justice & Care's Victim Navigators assisted Helena into safe accommodation, helped her to access trauma-informed counselling and supported her to provide critical evidence to the police, which then led to other victims being rescued.

Helena said: "You are the first person in a long time that has helped me believe something can be changed."

Everything you give will help the work of Justice & Care. Your contribution will help make a difference in their work in the UK, mainland Europe and Asia and will spur me on!

Together, let's give the gift of freedom.
