Today we stand! Today we fight! Today we tell those who oppress and persecute the innocent that we will be having none of it! Today we eat cake!


Here at RSVP, we felt compelled to make an effort to raise money in support of charities working in Chechnya to liberate and protect gay men who are being abducted, tortured and killed by the Chechen government.

Chechnya's president, Ramzan Kadyrov ...

 "has reportedly promised to wipe out the region's gay population by the start of Ramadan." 


... which blows our minds and breaks our hearts.


So, dig deep today, everyone - we have lives to save!


Cake, sausage rolls, donuts, cookies, brownies and many more tasty treats will be available from 12:00 until 18:00 today (if stocks last) and we will also be passing round the coin tin for any donations.


We have been rather humbled by the sheer amount of effort our staff have gone to. There are so many thoughtful, colourful, home-made treats piling up here!


We have a link here to another fundraising page if you would like to contribute. Every little helps!




Our thoughts are with those who are suffering at the hands of this intolerant, backwards regime.
