With these words, over 330 years ago, the Court of Session in Edinburgh rejected slavery... But slavery still survives around the world, even in Scotland.
Welcome to the website of the Tumbling Lassie Committee - we exist to raise awareness and funds for charities fighting against modern slavery and people trafficking and to help survivors in Scotland and beyond.
If you agree with usthat slavery should belong only in the history books, please help us to support charities that are working to make that a reality.
The 2019 season for the Tumbling Lassie appeal produced net funds raised for our charities amounting to £24,000. Many thanks to all who have contributed in any way to this outcome.
