Sophie's mother and very experienced youth worker, Sylvia Lancaster, is set to launch an educational game into high schools that shows young people how easy it is to be more tolerant and open their minds to accept all people, despite their lifestyle or appearance.

Sylvia's interview about Sophie has been transformed into the amazingly powerful "Black Roses - The Killing of Sophie Lancaster"

The writing competition will be launched by Julie and Ian in Manchester tomorrow (15th March).

We are very excited that the Simon Armitage drama will be aired tomorrow at 2.15. It will be the most powerful, emotional work you have probably ever heard.

Three years ago, young Goth woman, Sophie Lancaster, and her boyfriend, Rob Maltby, were savagely beaten by a gang of youths, simply because they chose to dress 'differently'.

This new anthology will help us raise funds for the charity.
