The cake sale was organised as part of Amnesty International’s ‘Write for Rights’ campaign – which involves sending Christmas cards and letters of support to people facing human rights abuses around the world.
By drawing attention to these people, many of whom have been wrongly imprisoned, this puts pressure on the governments of these countries to release them.
Students were able to write their own messages and the money donated will go towards the postage.
We’d like to thank all the students for their cards, the Law Society for helping to put it together (and for their cake donations), and Margaret Gaffney for organising it. We felt there was no better time to do it than now, as generosity, compassion, and goodwill are what Christmas is all about.
