A MUM is heading to the hob to create an evening of top-notch cuisine and also turn the heat up on human trafficking.

Hillmorton resident and Dine for Justice event organiser Kate Clements is channelling her passion for creativity in the kitchen by taking part in the Dine for Justice evening on March 10 - to raise funds and awareness for UK anti-trafficking charity Hope for Justice.

The 38-year-old said she wanted to combine cuisine with a cause.

The mum-of-two told The Observer: “I’ve always enjoyed cooking for family and friends so I thought I’d have a go at running my own event. It’s been fun getting the menu together and practising the recipes at home.

“Human trafficking is a huge problem, a modern-day slave trade. The thing is, it can seem too vast to do anything about, but Hope for Justice has already seen people rescued from really desperate situations here in our own country. It’s not just a big city problem, either. It’s happening all over the UK, and as a mum it horrifies me that children are victims too.

“It’s a pretty simple equation really - every little bit we can do to fund their investigations team means more rescues. At the moment, 99 per cent of victims aren’t rescued, and that’s something we want to change.”

Local activists from across Rugby have teamed up as an Actforjustice group, raising the profile of Hope for Justice and its work.

Dine for Justice takes place at the Grapevine Church, High Street, Hillmorton. Tickets cost £20, and all proceeds go to Hope for Justice. Call 01788 571047 or email actforjusticerugby@gmail.com for menus, information and to book tickets.
