Our fundraising journey so far - WE DID IT

Our fundraising journey so far - WE DID IT

WE DID IT! (But we want to do more!) We can’t believe it, but a month and a half in and we’ve hit our target of £9k ! You may be wondering where we go from here... The £9,000 is a figure given by the Home Office based on a family of two adults, they suggest £4,500 per adult to help them settle in for the first couple of years. We hope to offer a safe home to at least two adults, but quite possibly more, and children. This means we will keep pushing on with our fundraising, every penny we raise will make sure they are settled and integrated in the best possible way. We really do mean when we say, we have been utterly blown away by the communities response and generosity, and we really couldn’t be doing this without you all. Happy World Refugee Day everyone!
