A Formula One commentator for Sky Sports will host an evening of fun and entertainment to raise funds for a cause which works to rescue victims of human trafficking.

David Croft – known as Crofty to fans of the motorsport – will be behind the mic for the fundraiser at The Broadway Hotel in Letchworth on Friday, October 17.

Organised by Letchworth Garden City Church, the Hope for Herts event will support of the work of Hope for Justice – which identifies, rescues and cares for victims of human trafficking in the UK, US and Cambodia.

So far, Hope for Justice has helped 210 victims of trafficking since 2011 and in 2013, 23 per cent of those saved were children with the youngest being just three months old.

The charity has already trained more than 770 people on the frontline during 2014, teaching them to spot the signs of trafficking and work with the victims.
