Happy New Year to all the refugees & asylum seekers, to our many supporters and our funders. Many thanks for all your help in 2018, which we hope will continue in 2019.
We started the new year with a trip to Eureka, a management committee on the 8th Jan, a meeting in the Calderdale refugee network on the 15th, a family concert in Todmorden on 19th Jan. 26 refugees and asylum seekers came to Eureka – a children’s museum in Halifax with a lot of hands-on activities – see picture.
After our co-chair Ibrahim moved to London with his family we have now got six refugees and asylum seekers on our committee along with our four existing members.
We can also report that we sold for £40 of knitted scarfs and hats in December, which will be paid to the refugee who created it.
