Ellie Rose is running, cycling and swimming for Rape Crisis
"In May 2017 I decided to sign up for a 10km run after spending all of my life being unfit and overweight, struggling with disordered eating and depression. That 10km quickly transitioned into half marathons, and then into triathlons with increasing distances. I do this not only for the personal challenge and enjoyment, but to show what women are capable of, and to show just how strong, both physically and mentally, we can be; no matter what life has done to us. I'm fundraising for Rape Crisis as I know so many women close to me who have suffered from the trauma of sexual assault, and it is something that I myself am so aware of in everyday life. I would never want anyone to have to go through that trauma feeling alone."
Ellie Rose is running in a number of events this year culminating in the Yorkshire Marathon in October.

For Books' Sake
FURIES is the first poetry collection from For Books’ Sake, compiled following an open call for submissions that attracted over 700 entries from across the globe.
The FURIES poetry anthology is edited by Eve Lacey, and includes a foreword from Jenni Fagan, acclaimed author of The Panopticon.
Published in October 2014 to coincide with National Poetry Day, 50% of profits from the collection are donated to Rape Crisis England & Wales and it has raised us a fantastic £1,750 so far.
FURIES features both emerging and established voices, including published and prize-winning authors from Imtiaz Dharker to Rebecca Goss to Patience Agbabi. Within these pages you’ll find some of the best women’s writing out there today, united in celebration of women warriors past, present and future.
Kindle edition also available.
"To be voiceless is to question whether one even exists — so listen to these voices — for all of those who cannot speak out and for all those who are waiting to hear these words and know them as their own; to all those who understand that rape is a war we must all continue to challenge and fight in every country, every day, from now until the human race finally, truly, evolves. Until then — let it be known that we stood side-by-side on the long road home and said, enough is enough." Jenni Fagan

Sex, Drugs & HIV
At the time he started recording the first HIV sessions, he had just left punk band CHELSEA and joined SHAM 69. He knew musicians from various bands from being on the road and meeting people backstage etc, a lot of them became his friends, so he asked them to guest on the album.
19 years, 200 artists and 40 tracks later, the CD has been on sale since November 2014 and has already raised £1,000 for each of the four charities, including Rape Crisis England & Wales.
These are just a few of our amazing friends, supporters, funders and fundraisers. We'll aim to update the projects featured here every few months so we can showcase as many of these fabulous people and groups as possible.
