CAMPAIGNERS will be hoping for a breeze to help spread their message on the seafront in Colwyn Bay on Saturday, June 24.

Members of Amnesty International’s Colwyn Bay group are staging a “Fly a Kite for Human Rights” event to draw attention to the organisation’s human rights work.

Between 11am and 4pm on Saturday, they will hopefully be displaying their kite-flying skills on the prom near the Porth Eirias water sports centre.

Viv Smith-Franks, one of the organisers, said: “We want to draw attention to Amnesty International’s work.

“Throughout the world, members of Amnesty are working to uphold human rights, to try to stop torture, to campaign where human rights are denied and put pressure on governments around the world to deliver justice for their citizens.

“I feel that I am doing something active to redress the appalling things I hear on the news.”

The group meets on the last Thursday of every month at St Joseph’s Community Centre in Colwyn Bay.
