'Like' Bacup's Sophie Lancaster page to stamp out prejudice
1:37pm Wednesday 14th August 2013 in News
There are just 30 more ‘likes’ to go.
The organisation’s name stands for Stamp Out Prejudice, Hatred and Intimidation Everywhere, and was started by Sylvia Lancaster.
On Sunday August 24 in 2007, Sylvia’s 20-year-old daughter Sophie was beaten to death while walking through Stubbylee Park in Bacup.
A spokesman for the organisation posted on the Facebook page: “As many of you know it is nearly six years today since the shocking attack that led to Sophie's death.
“Thank you for all your kind messages and ongoing support since then.
“With your support Sophie's legacy helps others and her spirit lives on.”
Sylvia attended Bloodstock and Rebellion rock festivals raising awareness over the summer.
The organisation has also backed legislation to treat violent crime against people from subcultures as an aggravated offence.
