A bed push will be staged in the centre of Lynn on Monday as part of a week of activities promoting National Hate Crime Awareness Week.

People are being encouraged to take part in the push, which will start from the Tuesday Market Place at 10am, and make their own pledge to fight hate crime in West Norfolk.

Organisers plan to push the bed to the Providence Street community centre, where a range of sports activities will take place from 1pm.

The session has been organised by West Norfolk Voluntary and Community Action and Downham Market Community Service Volunteers and is part of a week of events across the county promoting the Hate Free pledge signed by a host of public bodies earlier this year.

Hate Free Norfolk network chairman Michelle de Oude said: “Together we can take positive action to tackle hate crime and ensure that victims are confident in reporting what happens to them, are taken seriously and receive the support they need.

“There are some fantastic community events taking place, from trolley pushes to art displays, workshops to film screenings. While the events are varied, the message is the same. We’re showing our support for a Hate Free Norfolk. ”
