Successful Write for Rights event - 9th January
We spent a busy morning on a stall at Blackburn Market on Saturday 9th January. Blackburn People's Choir sang beautifully and did a collection for our Write for Rights postage costs. Our volunteers worked hard, explaining the Amnesty urgent actions, obtaining signatures and messages of support, as well as a few challenges, from the general public. We also offered free face painting to children (and any adults who were interested....only two of our adult volunteers were brave enough!)
Overall, a very positive morning, with a couple of potential new members for our group, too.
