EAVES Poppy Project on London Turkish Radio’s DriveTime Show

Last week’s Drivetime programme with Fevzi Hussein and Canan Nuri programme on LTR, saw Denise Marshall, the Chief Executive Officer of the Eaves Poppy Project, speak of the amazing work her charity has done to help vulnerable women who have been trafficked into the UK sex industry.

The Eaves Poppy Project was set up in 2003, though Denise started working against the trafficking industry to help women who had been mistreated in 2001. The Poppy Project provides accommodation and support to women who have been trafficked into prostitution or domestic servitude. The Project works to improve the safety and wellbeing of women from all over the UK who have been trafficked and who are in need of short-term support.

The Poppy Project lost its bid recently to get funding from the government, and so they set about work to raise the money themselves to keep the Project going. Denise announced on the Drivetime show that in just ten days they had managed to raise £500,000. This is only a third of what they need to keep the project going, and so they appealed on the Drivetime Show for listeners to donate.  Denise added “The response to our appeal has been fantastic and we hope that we will be able to raise the full amount of £1.2M to ensure we can carry on helping these vulnerable women”.
