On August 11 2007, Robert Maltby and his girlfriend Sophie Lancaster were targeted and brutally beaten by a gang of youths, simply because their appearances were “different”. Sophie died of her injuries in hospital and The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was later set up in her memory.
The Sophie Lancaster Foundation has been a registered charity since 2009. Its main purpose is to teach young people about tolerance, so they can open their minds to accept all people, despite their differences in appearance or lifestyle.
There’s 20 paperback copies of SOPHIE/The World Might Not Live Through the Night on sale, as well as infinite digital copies. It’s all for a good cause so be nice and part with a few quid, if you can: http://www.andycarrington.co.uk/sophietwmnlttn
