This photo is of some of the donations which were delivered and sorted at Bromsgrove Methodist Church on Saturday 4 September as organised by Bromsgrove and District Asylum Seeker Support and supported by Bromsgrove and Redditch Welcomes Refugees. The generosity of people from Bromsgrove, Redditch, Studley. Alcester, Droitwich etc was overwhelming. The donations were taken by a coach…the company kindly stepped in at the last minute to help in view of the volume…to a Redditch council storage unit for distribution as needed to Afghan refugee families. Thank you so much to everyone who helped in so many ways to make this a phenomenal success.
Some new befrienders have come forward and it is likely that others will be needed as the refugees come out of quarantine and get resettled.
