This week, we’re trying to help 50 refugee children, who have recently arrived in the UK. They are staying in temporary accommodation in the Reading area, but arrived with very few possessions.
We’ve been asked if we can help to provide pyjamas, warm clothes and shoes for as many of the children as possible. With your help, we’d love to do that. These children have been through so much and we’d like to show them as much kindness as we can, so they feel safe, warm and welcome.
WHAT WE DID
In just one week, more than £1700 worth of brand new clothes and shoes were donated, and we received more than £1500 in donations to help the children and their families as well.
But it wasn’t just financial help - the kind cards people sent in for us to pass along to the refugee families were incredible. I think my favourites were these ones made by children in our School Kindness Workshops!
Thank you so much to everyone single one of you who helped in some way. And thank you to The Cowshed for their incredible work in supporting so many families.
