We made our Healthy Start campaign target!

This week is Refugee Week, and we’re delighted to have kicked off the week by overshooting our target and raising an incredible £12,085 in our Healthy Start campaign! Including Gift Aid, this will come to over £13,000.

Thank you so much to everyone who donated, fundraised, and shared our campaign – we are beyond grateful. This wonderful expression of solidarity towards people seeking sanctuary in our local community, is very fitting with the 2024 Refugee Week theme of “Our Home”.

The children we support are growing up against the backdrop of the hostile environment, and many have had experiences in the UK and in their home country that no child should face. The funds raised by the AFRIL community in the last two weeks are needed now more than ever as demand for our services continues to increase. Thank you for supporting us to offer healthy food for children at our food bank, sports activities at our Rainbow Club school, and food growing & fun at our Allotment of Refuge.
