The Foundation makes annual awards in recognition of the press’s invaluable contribution to raising the public’s awareness of human trafficking.

The evening began with speeches by Anthony Steen, John Bercow (Speaker of the House of Commons), Fiona McTaggart MP (Co-chair of the APPG on Human Trafficking) and William Hague (Leader of the House of Commons) and the event also included the presentation of Marsh Christian Awards to individuals who have given outstanding service in the fight against human trafficking. These included Christine Beddoe, who headed up ECPAT and who inspired Poole Soroptimists to start up the Purple Teardrop Campaign.
