Update for December 2017

Written by MB

After Juliet, John and Hamoude returned from Calais, Hull Daily Mail published an article about their trip and our ongoing need for donations.

In late November David Gautier and Lynne Petersen once again worked hard to present another music bonanza, where we raised over £700. Thanks to Kardomah97 for hosting it and thanks to the amazing musicians who gave their time, Brian Williams, the Rebecca Robyns jazz trio, Answers on a Postcard and The Assembly Line.

On 2nd December we held our annual Xmas fair at Unison, which raised over £800, with a Santa's Grotto and stalls.

The funds raised from these events has already been spent to help to fund a container sent by Care UK. An emergency appeal was also made for items for women and children living in refugee camps on the Greek island of Lesbos, and the collected donations, including strollers, warm clothes and shoes, and hygiene products, went to Manchester on the 15th, and shortly thereafter to Greece. Thanks so much to everyone who donated.
