Saturday 26th November would have been Sophie's 25th birthday.
The Sophie Lancaster Foundation aims to Stamp Out Prejudice, Hatred and Intolerance Everywhere [their fantastic website and Facebook page will tell you more]
The aims and objectives of the Charity are as follows:
- To create a lasting legacy to Sophie.
- To provide educational group-works that will challenge the prejudice and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures.
- To campaign to have the UK Hate Crime legislation extended to include people from “alternative subcultures” or “Lifestyle and Dress”
- To work in conjunction with politicians and police forces to ensure individuals who are part of subcultures are protected by the law.
In honour of Sophie's birthday and to mark support for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation, Illamasqua is hosting an internationally open competition to win a selection of cult pieces from the Illamasqua collection, including Medium Pencil in Sophie, Pure Pigment in Zeitgeist, Nail Varnish in Unnatural, Intense Lipgloss in Repulse, False Eye Lashes in no.21 and a S.O.P.H.I.E wristband.
And best of all, there will be FIVE winners! The competition is open until Midnight GMT Sunday 27th November [T&C's can be found at the link below].
