Woman raises hundreds of pounds for charity which tackles trafficking


"Modern Slavery can affect anybody no matter their age, gender or race. No country is free from modern slavery - not even the UK."
Chloe Cook, of Safe and Free



A woman fromhas raised hundreds of pounds for a charity  which tackles human trafficking and Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) after taking part in a 50-mile walk.

Chloe Cook, 22, completed her 'Fifty Miles for Freedom’ challenge in aid of Safe and Free, where she has worked as an office manager for three years.

She said: “The past year has been extremely hard for many people, including charities and businesses. The walk was a way to raise money and awareness on human trafficking whilst improving my mental health.”

Chloe, who walked across Oldham over a four-week-period, has raised over £400 to date. She said: “I’m thankful to everyone who donated. Safe and Free have done some amazing work over the years and such funds enable them to continue.

“Safe and Free have made me very passionate about my work and I am so pleased to be able to help them on their fight against human trafficking and CSE.”

Safe and Free was set up nearly 10 years ago by former detective John Piekos. It provides teachers and pupils with educational materials to better protect young people - both online and in their everyday lives.

There are estimated to be over 40 million people in modern slavery around the world. Last year, over 10,000 people were referred to the authorities in the UK.

Chloe said: Modern Slavery can affect anybody no matter their age, gender or race. No country is free from modern slavery - not even the UK.”
