Insight into The Sophie Lancaster Foundation



On 11th August 2007, 20 year-old Sophie Lancaster and her boyfriend Robert Maltby were kicked, stamped on and left unconscious – for nothing more than looking different. Sophie later died from her injuries.

The S.O.P.H.I.E. Lancaster Foundation was set up by Sylvia Lancaster, a youth worker and Sophie's mother, in her memory, and is dedicated to educating young people in our society about acceptance and tolerance towards others through interactive youth workshops.
As a brand that promotes the right to experiment and self-express through the way you look, Illamasqua have continually supported the Foundation's work and remains committed to changing attitudes towards subcultures.
To mark the 4th anniversary of Sophie's death, we have created a new film in association with The S.O.P.H.I.E. Lancaster Foundation to further raise awareness and celebrate their work.
Watch the film above and find out how and where the funding for the charity goes.
