The Hull Lighthouse Journal

September 2017 -  Hull Lighthouse has an amazing team of volunteers who work alongside us as we meet the women on the streets.They are invaluable and we couldn’t run the evening outreach without them.

September 2017 - Great news! We have just had confirmation that Lloyds will be continuing to  fund our two p/t outreach worker posts for a further three years. Also received generous grants from Sir James Reckitt and the MCF. 

August 2017 - iPad Art - A massive thank you to Jason & Laura from Blue Jay Way Digital Arts for facilitating a very interesting and inspiring iPad art session held at Artlink, Hull. Great opportunity to be involved in the City of Culture art scene.

August 2017 - Art. Just done the first of two sessions with Cass Daulton a local artist. There's plenty of hidden talent emerging!!

July 2017 - Strawberry picking. We did this in memory of a wonderful person that was so sadly taken from us. A reflective, but thoroughly enjoyable afternoon!

June 2017 - Cooking Sessions These sessions are producing some very tasty food. They enable women to meet together, learn basic kitchen skills as well as how to prepare and cook healthy but cheap and simple meals whilst also learning the basic principles of food hygiene.

May 2017 - An Untold Story. Twelve women have bravely and earnestly documented their lives through interviews, poetry, prose and artwork. They tell of the abuse, pain and loss, but also you will read of exceptional courage and hope….. It is produced just as they told it!

This book is a powerful read and it is incredibly important for us to listen to what these brave women have to say.

Our hope is that the documented experiences of these women will open people’s eyes to what really goes on, raise awareness of the extreme difficulties faced by women involved in street prostitution and change many people’s perceptions of what their lives are like.
