Grateful for your Support!
Updated: Jan 7, 2022
Despite the constantly changing laws and travel restrictions, we were delighted over the last few weeks to have been joined by some of our longest and most vital partners.
Three weeks ago the incredible Amber Bauer from ForRefugees came over and spent a day with our team on-site and in the warehouse. ForRefugees have supported our work for the last three years. Over this period they have funded unique projects and the purchasing of vehicles, as well as many general running costs.
Just over a week ago, we were joined by the wonderful Onjali Rauf from O's Refugee Aid Team. Onjali has supported us for over three years with huge amounts of fundraising and gathering of donations. One year ago we then partnered with O's Refugee Aid Team to acquire the beautiful warehouse space we now operate from. Onjali was also joined by the delightful Ros and Cathy.
Two weeks ago we were joined by Caroline Gregory and Freeman Libby from the amazing Calais Action. Calais Action have supported the cause in north France for over 5 years and continue to fundraise for groups based here. We would like to thank them for their support in these particularly difficult times.
We would like to extend our thanks to all the groups and individuals who have donated to our latest fundraiser and supported our work over this winter. School Bus Project, Penrith and Eden Refugee Network, Patrice Delchambre, Eva Waes. As well as, everyone else who has donated. Whether big or small, every bit makes a difference.
Furthermore, we would also like to recognise and thank some of our most loyal and committed groups who continue to ship vital aid over to us here, despite many not being able to make it over in person. HertsforRefugees, Hope and Aid Direct, Refugee Compassion, The Ripple Effect, One and all Aid, Falmouth and Penryn Welcome Refugee Families, Christophe Steyaert, Ben Van Brugge, Veerle Van Raemdonck, Noor Berckx, Leyla Bajramovic, WorldChangers, Stand by You Foundation, Gent4Humanity refugee support.
Lastly, we would like to thank the brilliant Distribute Aid for their tireless efforts in sending over trucks loaded with essential donations.
We cannot express our gratitude enough to all of you who support our work in one way or another. We simply could not provide the support we do without you.
