A band in Norfolk is preparing to hold a concert that will raise money for a campaign to put an end to human trafficking.

The Fakenham Fellowship Band will hold the Friday Night is Music Night concert at the Salvation Army in Fakenham on May 4.

While entry will be free, guests will be able to make donations which will be used for the Salvation Army’s campaign to stop modern slavery, an issue that Prime Minister Theresa May has called “the great human rights issue of our time”.

The Salvation Army currently runs a support programme for adult victims of slavery and in its first year they supported 378 people, by their fifth year they were supporting more than 2,000.

The concert will take place at The Salvation Army on Oak Street in Fakenham at 7.30pm on Friday May 4.
