Aslackby charity craft fair raises hundreds to help combat slavery

A charity craft fair held in Aslackby on Saturday has helped raise hundreds of pounds for Hope for Justice, a charity fighting for people held in modern day slavery.

The sale was the brainchild of Jacqueline Abel, a devout christian who is committed to ending slavery.

More than 100 people flocked to the fair, which featured seven stalls wood craft, cards, jewellery, handbags, slate craft and much more.

The fair is the latest in the long line of event Jacqueline and her husband, Christopher, have held in support of the charity.

Jacqueline said: "I started to become concerned about human trafficking in 2011, and decided I needed to do something about it. We had a biy from Ghana stay with us, and his name was Justice. He used to walk our dog, Hope. And then out of the blue I got an email from the charity Hope for Justice. I was asking God which charity to support, and the email was It was God's direction.

"Saturday's event was very well supported. Obviously we were competing against a lot of other events on Saturday, but we enjoyed a good turn out. It was a really good day."
