A better world IS possible

I know many of us feel scared about the anger, racism and general division facing our country. If you want to do something positive, then please BUY A PIN BADGE from us, with Jo Cox’s motto on it: “More in common than that which divides us”. The proceeds from sales will be split between the Refugee Council and the anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic schools’ project: Equality and Diversity for Peer-Led Projects (at The Proud Trust).
