Lush Charity Auction

"FFLAG was recently invited to Lush's Charity Auction at their annual international conference in Windsor. Lush Charity Pot has kindly supported FFLAG in the past. Lush Charity Pot supports grassroots charities working in the areas of animal protection, the environmentand human rights.
 
We were invited as a representative of human rights charities – because gay rights are human rights.
 
It was wonderful to meet Lush staff from around the globe and to have time to talk to so many people who felt so passionately about the work that they do – and the charities Lush supports. Before the auction, Trustee Sorrel Atkinson was asked to give a short motivational speech about the work of FFLAG.
 
'It was a bit nerve­racking to stand up and talk in front of 600 people. The atmosphere was electric and when I said that I was the out and proud mum of a gay son, I was met with whoops and cheers.' said Sorrel.
 
"Everyone was so attentive and interested in the work that FFLAG does. It was the most amazing evening. The auction was completely whacky – introduced by a pantomime cow. Items auctioned included everything from a Vivian Westwood signed teeshirt to an all expenses paid trip to Guatemala."
 
Although there isn't an exact figure yet, the donation from the Lush Charity auction is set to be the largest single donation that FFLAG has ever had. The generosity of all those who took part in that memorable evening will ensure that FFLAG will be able to continue to reach out to all those who need our support. Our most sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone at Lush!
