The National Secularist Society of the year presentation lunch

Lucy Page and Jas Sahouta (leaders of Godalming College Secular Society) attended a prestigious lunch in London on 24 March hosted by the National Secular Society with Peter Tatchell (LGBT campaigner) as Master of Ceremonies.

Lucy and Jas were invited on stage by Mariam Nawazi (One Law for All) to promote 'My Stealthy Freedom' an Iranian on line movement to defend the right for freedom from compulsory Hijab.

Both students had an unforgettable experience and were able to mingle and make contacts with high profile Secular campaigners such as Southall Black Sisters and Amina Lone ( Social Action and Research Foundation) which fearlessly challenges both the Islamist and anti Muslim far Right.

The £5000 prize went to Rev Graham Sawyer, a serving vicar, for his courageous work in exposing sexual abuse in the Church of England.
