Thrills galore for Safe and Sound fundraisers

Safe and Sound has announced its first two fundraising events for 2024 with proceeds going to help the charity protect and support more young people and families whose lives have been affected by child exploitation.

The first event will be the popular annual Race Night on Thursday April 25, sponsored by Cosy Direct. This is set to be the biggest ever and will be hosted by the city’s newly-opened Great Northern Classics.

Guided by host and charity CEO Tracy Harrison, race goers place their bets and then cheer their chosen horses over the finishing line with the races played out on giant screens. Tickets can be booked for individuals or tables of eight and ten.

Those looking for an even greater thrill will then have the opportunity to join a sponsored skydive on Friday June 28, at Langar Airfield, Nottingham.

Representatives from several local businesses have already signed up including Smith Partnership, Gravity Digital, Bloc Digital and PIB Insurance – prompting organisers to look at booking a second date due to the high demand.

Further events are planned for later in the year and Tracy Harrison explained: “The Derbyshire business community has always shown us amazing support and this is vital to ensure we can support children as young as seven who are being groomed and exploited both online and in person in our local communities as well as their families.

“We like to set our supporters a new challenge every year and, having tackled abseiling and fire walking in the past, I hope that as many people as possible will join me in jumping out of a plane!

“Although child exploitation is a serious and sometimes uncomfortable truth, our fundraising events are always designed to be fun to reflect our goal – to help young people and families move forward and bring joy and laughter back into their lives.”
