The night included live and silent auctions with a wide range of art work donated by local and established UK artists. Plus comedy from Joe Collett, Marie Golbourne and Chris Kehoe.
All proceeds from the auction will be split between the Together Now and the Survivors of Torture Relief Fund.
Survivors of Torture Relief Fund
The Survivors of Torture Relief Fund is a charity dedicated to the relief of financial hardship among survivors of torture who are refugees, or asylum seekers, and their dependents by providing grants to charities in Greater Manchester whose role is to provide therapeutic care for refugees and asylum seekers who have suffered state-inflicted torture.
‘It will really help to have this grant as I don’t know that I could carry on living like this without some help. It is important that you recognise the situation we are in. This is not our fault. It is very frightening and depressing not having anything’.
Many survivors of torture live a life of destitution or hardship while receiving psychological therapy from charities struggling to provide this essential service. By supporting the Survivors of Torture Relief Fund you will help make it possible for people to recover from the trauma of torture.
