If like me, that horrific photo of the poor little boy has tipped you into action over the refugee crisis, here are some ways you can help.
There is a Vigil Monday 7th September 7pm Market Square – to show solidarity, meet other people and find out how you can help and most importantly to drop off your donations for refugees.
Cal Aid – to donate money and see if you can help in any other way.
Take a look at this website in Germany, they are eagerly trying to set up similar projects in other places. If it could work for you, why not pop them an email?
There will be a gathering in central London on September 12th to show support for positive change ahead of the meeting on the 14th September of the EU’s 28 member states for emergency talks on Europe’s escalating refugee crisis.
And my bit of action is to arrange a donation point on Saturday’s Stuff of Life festival, please see the list below for what items are needed/not needed.
What we DO NOT need:
WOMEN and CHILDREN’S CLOTHES or SHOES
What we BADLY need:
MENS SHOES: trainers or hiking shoes size 41-46 (No city leather/heels or wellies)
TENTS, COVERS, TARPAULIN (even incomplete)
JACKETS: size SMALL and MEDIUM only
CANDLES or other lighting implements
What we ALWAYS need:
Jeans size 28-32
If anyone wishes to help me with this collection, please drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – need help particularly with raising awareness, transport and help on Saturday.
Have a good day, be grateful for what you have and please tell your friends about the donation points (this Saturday – stuff of life festival OR Monday 7pm in the Market Square),
