Suzy Lamplugh Trust Marks 30th Anniversary
Over 50,000 trained over three decades of improving personal safety
28th July sees Suzy Lamplugh Trust mark the 30th anniversary of Suzy's dissapearance, whilst lone working, as an Estate Agent in West London, back in 1986. Suzy has sadly never been found, but the Trust set up in her name - founded by her parents Paul and Diana Lamplugh shortly after she went missing - is now attempting to raise £30,000 with its 'Right To Be Safe' appeal.
Suzy Lamplugh Trust's motto of 'Live Life Safe' is still as relevant for the charity today, it estimates it has trained over 50,000 people in how to improve their personal safety, in three decades of operation.
A key part of the Trust's latest appeal is focusing on the education of young people. As Paul Lamplugh points out, "it's a life skill, once learned it lasts forever". The Trust has also successfully campaigned for private hire vehical licensing in London, and setting up the National Stalking Helpline.
Attending a Suzy Lamplugh Trust event was pivotal in the idea behind, and subsequent creation of SoloProtect, and as such, remains the company's nominated charity.
In 2015, SoloProtect moved to a brand new, UK HQ, incorporating a purpose built Alarm Receiving Centre, which is located at Suzy Lamplugh House in Sheffield. The Trust use the venue to deliver personal safety training to clients located in the north of the UK.
