Our mission is to use our story of being the first people to circumnavigate the globe on a scooter and sidecar, to raise valuable funds and awareness for the fight against modern slavery.
On route we visited a host of charities and NGOs fighting modern slavery to showcase the fantastic work they do. Now, we’re fundraising for the below organisations and you can donate here.
UNSEEN UK – Unseen run the UK’s Modern Slavery Helpline (08000 121 700) and safe houses for victims in the South West of the UK. They’re working to free the thousands of people living in slavery in the UK.
Utopia 56 – Utopia 56 aren’t directly a modern slavery charity but they prevent it by supporting people wrapped in the migrant crisis in Europe. Refugees are exceptionally vulnerable to being trafficked in to modern slavery.

Founded by a group of inspiring women including Click Ngwere, who escaped from slavery in Greece, it does fantastic work in providing vulnerable women with the tools they need to support themselves and their families.
People’s Legal Aid Centre Sudan (PLACE) – PLACE work to prevent human trafficking with in Sudan and fight to free those who are trapped.
