Here at House Of Bats we are proud to support The Sophie Lancaster Foundation, giving 10% of all profits to support their fantastic charitable work.
The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was founded in 2007 by Sylvia Lancaster in memory of her beautiful daughter Sophie who died following an unprovoked attack in which she and her partner Rob were brutally beaten because of their alternative appearance.
The charity works tirelessly to fight prejudice and intolerance everywhere, and campaigns to have the UK Hate Crime legislation extended to include people from alternative subcultures. They work extensively in schools and with young people to help break down their hatred and fears of those who are ‘different’ from them – be it alternative subcultures, disabilities, religious differences, race, sexual orientation or any other prejudices they may hold.
In 2014 Sylvia was awarded an OBE for her work in reducing hate crime. They have been successful in getting increasing numbers of UK police forces and authorities to include Alternative Subcultures in their monitoring of hate crime.
