What: A sponsored walk around Bristol to raise money for Bristol City of Sanctuary’s Transport Fund
On the 14th of August, Bristol Defend Asylum Seekers Campaign, along with others, will do a sponsored walk to raise money for our Sanctuary Transport Fund. The fund has been set up to provide free bus tickets to people seeking sanctuary, focusing on people who are destitute and those considered most vulnerable in the city.
The walk will be around those places in Bristol that are particularly associated with
slavery and the slave trade, upon which so much of Bristol’s wealth has been built. Further details to follow, but please note that this plan is contingent on lockdown easing.
