Another van load of donations was sent off, thanks again to Abid Pervez. Lots of food in this one! Thanks to all our donators, sorters, packers and loaders.
Marjorie Brabazon held a garden party, which, despite the traditional English Summer Rain, was a lovely afternoon and raised £213.
The Ellesmere Centre for Psychotherapy, Counselling and Training held a charity ball and raised £1,250.00, which will be shared with From Syria With Love. FSWL raise funds by selling art done by Syrian children to help and support people who have been effected by the conflict. In the photo is a print of one of these pictures that Hull Help for Refugees is pleased to present to the wonderful people at the Ellesmere Centre. FSWL also have a brilliant book and a CD which are available from HHfR.
Big thank you to a team from Hull West and Hessle quiz night for donating us their winnings!
And our usual fundraising efforts have continued, with two carboots this month, as well as a stall at the Humber Street Market - every third Sunday, in and around Fruit!
